Journal oi Proceedings 

The Rev. Mortimer Glover and the Rev. Charles I. Penick, 
speaking for the Department of Christian Education and the

new item in the budget for $10,000.00 for Diocesan Director

sired separate items of the budget could be voted on.

Much discussion on the part of both clergy and laymen en- 
sued. 

Upon a standing vote the motion carried.

tee, took the Chair. 

It was moved and seconded that the Bishop's salary be in- 
creased to $10,000.00 from $8,000.00. Much enthusiastic dis- 
cussion ensued all being in favor of the motion. 

It was carried to increase the Bishop's salary to $10,000.00 
a year. 

The Bishop returned to the Chair. 

It was moved and carried to accept the Budget for 1957 as

ville Beach, be, and it hereby is, admitted to the Convention

and aided parishes. This was referred to the Committee on 
Canons. 

The Committee further recommended that all Churches who 
report an increase of 8% of Communicant strength in Confir- 



22 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Journal of Proceedings 

mations one half of whom are Adults should be recognized in 
a specific way. This recommendation carried.

Carolina in the absence of the President, Mr. Iverson Skinner, 
and the Vice-President, Mr. Frank Saunders, Mr. Skinner be- 
ing in Europe and Mr. Saunders on his way to a provincial lay- 
men's meeting in Florida (see page 65). 

Mr. Nicholas L. Walker presented the following resolution 
which was adopted : 

"Sensing that the employment of a Director of Christian 
Education failed on account of inadequate information I move 
that Bishop Wright be requested to appoint a committee to 
study the question of financing and the type of person to be 
employed and report to the Convention next year". 

The Bishop announced he would appoint the Committee 
later. 

The Rev. E. F. Moseley gave a verbal report for the Camps 
and Conferences Committee. 

The Rev. Daniel W. Allen gave the report of the Builders for 
Christ Campaign and also the report of Diocesan Plans for 
Church Extension (see page 42). 

The Bishop presented the Rev. Alexander Livesay and the 
Rev. Richard Horsley as clergy new in the Diocese since the last 
Convention. 

The Rev. Robert J. Snell urged the prompt completion of 
Parochial Reports and the need of complying with the Canon 
which indicates they should be in the Secretary of Convention's 
hands by February 1st in order to have the previous year's 
statistics available for Convention. 

The Rev. George F. Hill presented the following resolution 
which was adopted: — 

"That the Diocesan Convention Secretary send each year 
with the official form for delegates and alternates: First, a 
notice requesting each parish and mission to elect their dele- 
gates and alternates from 60 to 90 days before the Diocesan 
Convention date, Second : to send these names to the host par- 
ish at least 30 days before the Convention date, Third, Request 
each parish and mission to ?ive not only the city and Church

lains (see page 5).

leigh Jenkins in an automobile accident and the Secretary was

SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 23 

Journal of Proceedings 

and that we missed him from Convention. This telegram was 
sent after the afternoon adjournment of Convention. 
The Convention recessed at 4:55 P.M. 

WEDNESDAY EVENING 

The Annual Convention service was held in Christ Church 
at 8 P.M. The service of Evening Prayer was read by the Rev. 
Messrs. Fred I. Ferris, Charles Wulfe, and George F. Hill. The 
Rt. Rev. Frank Juhan D. D., retired Bishop of Florida, gave 
an inspiring and informative address on the University of the 
South at Sewanee, Tenn., and stressed particularly the comple- 
tion of All Saints' Chapel. 

Bishop Wright led the closing prayers. 

THURSDAY MORNING 

A celebration of the Holy Communion was held at 7 :30 A.M. 
Bishop Wright being the celebrant and the Rev. Hume Cox,

assistants. 

The Convention resumed session at 9:45 A.M. being led in 
prayers by the Bishop. 

Election of Delegates to the Provincial Synod to be held in 
Miami Beach, Florida on October 2nd and 3nd ensued, (see 
page 8). 

The plurality method of electing was adopted — to vote for 
four in each order and the four receiving the most votes would 
be the delegates and the next four would be alternates. Since 
it was indicated the General Canons provide that as many as 
six delegates may be elected it was decided that if more than 
four could attend in either or both orders the delegation would 
be empowered to declare additional delegates up to and includ- 
ing six. 

It was moved and carried that the delegates in both clerical 
and lay orders receiving the largest number of votes would be 
the convenor of their respective group. After ballots had been 
counted the Rev. R. J. Snell and Mr. Frank Wooten were de- 
clared Convenors. 

The Bishop appointed two special committees — one to pro- 
mote the completion of All Saints' Chapel, Sewanee — the 
other to study the need of a Diocesan Director of Religious 
Education (see pages 7-8). The first committee was asked to 
meet with Bishop Juhan and report back. 

The Rev. Daniel W. Allen presented by title the report of 
St. Mary's College (see page 70) . 

The Rev. R. J. Snell read two proposed changes in the Con- 
stitution of the General Church to be voted on at the 1958 Gen- 
eral Convention.

conference on Alcoholism held each summer in Kanuga. 

2. "That Bishop Wright appoint a Committee to investigate

hope of choosing a more satisfactory date for this meeting". 

The Bishop appointed a special committee to implement this 
last resolution (see page 7). 

The Bishop announced the appointment of Mr. Louis Swin- 
dell of Washington, N. C. as Camp Leach Director during the 
illness of the Rev. Stanleigh Jenkins. 

Elections ensued to the various offices and boards after Mr. 
Walker Taylor Jr. gave the report of the Nominating Commit- 
tee (see pages 4-8). 

The Committee on Completion of All Saints' Chapel, Uni- 
versity of the South, presented the following resolution which 
was passed: — 

"Whereas the Convention having learned of the Conference 
of the Bishops of the owning Dioceses of Sewanee held in Se-

possible, and also agreeing that each would urgently request 
their respective Dioceses to accept their pro-rata share of the 
Cost of completion to be secured during 1956 and 1957 in such 
manner as each Diocese may determine, 

"Be it resolved that this Diocese in this Convention does as- 
sure the University of the South that it willingly accepts its

Church, Elzabeth City, and to their Rector and Vestry, Choir, 
Choir Director and Organist our heartfelt thanks for the in- 
spiration received in Christ Church, also for the very excellent 
arrangements and accommodations and also for their friendly 
welcome and reception". 

The Rev. Charles I. Penick reported for the Committee on 
Convention Site and it was moved and carried to accept the in- 
vitation of St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, to entertain the 1957 
Convention. 

Announcement of the appointment of the Chairmen of the 
Departments of the Executive Council was made by the Bish- 
op (see page 5). 

Certain changes in the Constitution of the Diocese passed

26 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

BISHOFS ADDRESS 

Brethren of the Clergy and Laity : 

"Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and the 
Lord Jesus Christ." 

I welcome you today to the Seventy-Third Annual Conven- 
tion of the Diocese of East Carolina, and the 11th over which 
I have had the privilege of presiding. 

We are meeting today in historic Christ Church, Elizabeth 
City at a time when this year 1956 marks the one hundredth 
anniversary of the building of this Church, a Church that has 
a long record of fine usefulness in the life of the Diocese Off 
East Carolina. I know that I speak for all present when I say 
how happy we are to be here and when I extend to Christ 
Church our appreciation for their most gracious invitation and 
cordial hospitality. 

Sometimes one feels that a Church so catches the spirit of 
a man that the two are fused into one. This is so of Christ 
Church and the Reverend George Frank Hill. The Rev. Mr. Hill 
came as Rector of Christ Church 37 years ago. He is a true 
native son of the Diocese of East Carolina, having served his 
entire Ministry here. He was born in Chocowinity and was 
educated there in the school that made many illustrious men 
for the State of North Carolina. From Chocowinity, he went 
to the University of North Carolina and to the Virginia Theo- 
logical Seminary. After Ordination, he served in St. James' 
Church. Wilmington, and in St. Paul's Church, Greenville, com- 
ing to Elizabeth City in 1919. 

George Frank Hill has not only seen Elizabeth City and 
Christ Church grow but also has been a moving spirit in this 
growth. Greatly beloved in Elizabeth City by citizens in all 
walks of life he has stood always as a beacon of light, speaking 
out boldly, courageously, wisely, and earnestly for the cause, 
and in the spirit of his Master, Jesus Christ. 

The Rev. Mr. Hill has tendered his resignation to the 
Vestry of Christ Church effective December 31st of this year. 
This Convention, therefore, is the last that he will attend as an 
active Clergyman of this Diocese. We shall miss him greatly 
in that capacity but we hope that he will long be with us, both 
in our Conventions and in our Diocesan life, giving us the value 
of his wise judgment, of his deep sincerity, and of his dedicat- 
ed devotion, to the cause that all of us are trying to serve. May 
God bless him always. 

CONTRIBUTIONS OF OUR TWO LAY 
ORGANIZATIONS' PRESIDENTS 

Retiring this year as President of the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the Diocese of East Carolina, Mrs. Walker Taylor will make 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 27 

Bishop's Address 

her last report as President to this Convention. It would be 
difficult for me to express adequately what a real contribution 
Mrs. Taylor has made, both to the Auxiliary and to the Diocese. 
There has been no phase of our Diocesan life that she has not 
entered into whole-heartedly and completely, and the fine co- 
operation and assistance that the Auxiliary has given to the 
Bishop of the Diocese during her years as President has been 
due, in no small measure, to Mrs. Taylor's leadership. During 
these years our Diocese has risen in status in the General 
Church from an Aided Diocese to a full self-supporting one. 
Each year of our five-year plan to do this, we received not only 
moral encouragement but also generous financial assistance 
from the budget of the Woman's Auxiliary. I am sure that no 
Bishop could ever have a finer Auxiliary than the Bishop of 
East Carolina, and my appreciation and gratitude to Mrs. Walk- 
er Taylor, the retiring President, to Mrs. William Rosevear who 
succeeds her as President, and to other women in the leader- 
ship of this outstanding organization knows no bounds. 

Retiring also this year as President of the Laymen of East 
Carolina is Mr. Iverson Skinner, who has done so much to make 
our Laymen's group one of the most effective in the whole 
Church. Mr. Skinner's fine insight into the work of our Lay- 
men has lifted the religious and spiritual life of this organiza- 
tion to a higher level. An indication of this is the "Parish Life 
Conferences" being sponsored this year by the Laymen of East 
Carolina, and the increase and emphasis on Brotherhood of St. 
Andrew work being done through the Diocese. Financially, 
our Laymen of East Carolina raised last year over $50,000, 
which is possibly the largest amount raised by any Diocesan 
Laymen's organization in the whole Church. They are now 
participating in many areas of our Diocesan, Provincial, and 
General Church work. 

To the heads of these two outstanding organizations — the 
Woman's Auxiliary of East Carolina and the Laymen of East 
Carolina — I extend my sincere thanks and my heartfelt con- 
gratulations. May their work continue to grow in effective- 
ness for the work of God in this Diocese. 

MINIMUM CLERGY SALARIES 

If I should be asked what I think is the most important 
thing to come before this Convention, it would be without hesi- 
tation the salaries of our Missionary Clergy. I do not feel that 
we have yet gotten them to a proper and morally adequate level. 
Some of our Clergy, or their wives, are still compelled to do se- 
cular work to bring in enough income to maintain the family 
budget. I do not mean to be unduly emotional about this, but 
I do feel that we have a tremendous moral obligation to see to 
it that our Clergy families in East Carolina do not suffer. It 



28 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

is, in my opinion, still the first concern of our Diocesan Conven- 
tion. 

The primary item in the budget, therefore, and the one that 
should be maintained at its increased level, at all costs, is the 
item for salaries of our Missionary Clergy. It is my recommen- 
dation that East Carolina seek immediately to establish mini- 
mum salaries for our married Clergy of $4,200, plus Rectory, 
plus pension assessment, and for single Clergy of $3,600, plus 
Rectory, plus pension assessment. These figures are incorp- 
orated in the budget that will be presented today and I hope 
that this item will receive A-l priority at this Convention. 

Now, although this Diocesan increase is in the budget to 
be presented, in raising Missionary Clergy salaries the prob- 
lem is not as easy as it appears to be, on the surface. The Rev. 
Mr. Allen, our Executive Secretary, and I have long felt that 
it was unwise (and certainly not good stewardship) for the 
Diocese to raise Missionary Clergy salaries without the mis- 
sions themselves doing some proportionate share. This two- 
way effort has not been an easy thing to do, in many cases, and 
our Mission Churches sometimes lag behind the Diocese in 
this respect. It is my hope that members of Mission Vestries 
and Mission Committees represented at this Convention will 
help us with this. We have just started, this past month, a 
new and vigorous effort in this regard, through our Depart- 
ment of Missions. Already we see signs of real improvement. 
We must pull together and raise our Missionary Clergy salaries. 
We can do it and we must do it. Remember that the Diocese 
is eager to do even more than its part and will work enthusiast- 
ically with any Mission Church seeking to raise the salary of 
their Clergyman. 

To protect the efforts of Mission Churches and the Depart- 
ment of Missions in this regard, it is my recommendation that 
from now on all reserves of the Bishop Darst Memorial Fund 
be set aside and earmarked for this purpose. It was for Mission- 
ary salaries that this Fund was given by our people. I consider 
it as inviolate as a Trust Fund. It is my hope that under no 
circumstances will one penny more of the Bishop Darst Memori- 
al Fund be either given or loaned for any purpose except the 
raising of salaries of our Missionary Clergy. 

DIOCESAN DIRECTOR OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
AND YOUTH WORK 

Although I reiterate that I feel that the primary concern 
of our Department of Finance at this time should be adequate 
minimum salaries for our Missionary Clergy, I speak again 
partly for the Clergy of our Diocese when I say that most of 
them feel intensely the need for a "Diocesan Director of Christ- 
ian Education and Youth Work" also at this time. For the 
past seven years, a new movement in Christian Education has 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 29 

Bishop's Address 

been slowly winning and deepening the lives of our people. 
For the Clergy, the Churches, and the Diocese to take full ad- 
vantage of this, it is almost a necessity to employ someone 
trained in the New Curriculum of the Church. It is my hope 
that this Convention will see fit to make possible the employ- 
ment of such a Clergyman, on a full-time basis. 

Let me say, most emphatically, however, that I feel that if 
such a Priest is employed, that this item should be taken care 
of in the budget being presented to this Convention. I do not 
feel that this salary should come from Diocesan reserves 
(whatever reserve we have should be retained for the protec- 
tion of Missionary Clergy salaries). Again, this would be a 
continuing salary and reserves would not continue long but 
would be quickly depleted. We could not employ a man for one 
year, or even two years, and then drop him. 

Since we have increased our budget in ten years from 
approximately $35,000 to $135,000, this is, indeed, a hopeful, 
an adventurous and an encouraging sign. The amount of good 
Christian work that we do is largely in proportion to our budg- 
et. With a small budget, wo do a small piece of Christian work. 
With a large budget, we do a large piece of Christian work. Let 
us not be afraid of a large budget. Frankly, I travel about 
the Diocese constantly and I know literally of no Episcopalians 
who seem to me to be suffering because of their contributions 
to the Church. I hope that this Convention will be willing to 
employ a Diocesan Director of Christian Education and, if so, 
will be willing to include his salary as an item in the 1957 bud- 
get to be presented today. 

CLERICAL CHANGES IN THE DIOCESE 

Since the last meeting of our Convention, two new Clergy- 
men have been added to our Diocesan family. The Rev. Richard 
E. Horsley who has been for the past five years in the Chap- 
laincy of our Armed Forces has now returned and is Priest-in- 
Charge of St. Paul's Church, Washington, St. Andrew's Church, 
Greenville, and St. Stephen's Church, Haddock's Cross Roads. 
The Rev. Alexander Livesay, who graduated last June from the 
Virginia Theological Seminary, is now Priest-in-Charge of St. 
Christopher's Church, Havelock. Within the next two months, 
two additional Clergyman will come into the Diocese, having 
accepted Calls to Churches that have recently become vacant. 
The Rev. Henry Johnston, Jr., now in the Diocese of Virginia; 
will soon become Rector of Holy Trinity Church, Fayetteville. 
The Rev. Edward T. Small, now in the Diocese of South Caro- 
lina, will soon become Rector of the Good Shepherd Church in 
Wilmington. In addition to these men, upon graduation from 
the Virginia Seminary in June, Lloyd W. Fonvielle will return 
to the Diocese and will serve in the Belhaven field and upon 
graduation from Sewanee, John C. Taylor will again be with 



30 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

us. We most heartily welcome these additions to our East Caro- 
lina fellowship of Clergy and, later in this meeting, I shall in- 
troduce those who are present here today to this Convention. 

During the past year, three Clergymen have left the Dio- 
cese. The Rev. John J. Ormond has transferred to the Diocese 
of Louisiana, the Rev. Henry T. Egger has transferred to the 
Diocese of North Carolina, and the Rev. Kirk W. Cresap has 
resigned as Rector of St. John's Church, Wilmington, and is 
now in the Diocese of Maryland. 

CONFIRMATIONS DURING THE PAST YEAR 

I am glad to report that our Confirmations during the past 
year have been, by far, the largest in the history of the Dio- 
cese. If we had Confirmed one more person, the total for the 
year would have been 500. Again this year, as it has been for 
the past four years, the number Confirmed has been the larg- 
est in Diocesan history. I now feel that we are "on the way" 
with our Confirmations and that the growth is an unmistakable 
and a steady one. It may interest you to know that during 
the past ten years I have Confirmed 4,587 persons, which is a 
number slightly more than 50% of our total Communicant 
strength in the Diocese today. And yet this number, my 
friends, as I have said to you each year, is not large enough. 
Let me again lay upon your heart and conscience the state- 
ments that I have made several times before — that "unless 
each Church in the Diocese sets as its goal Confirming 8% of 
its Communicant strength each year (with at least half of 
these adults) we will not be showing what I consider a normal 
and a reasonable growth for the Episcopal Church in this part 
of the country". 

I feel that the growth in Confirmations this year has been 
due, in no small measure, to several Churches that have taken 
seriously the need for Lay Evangelism and have used as their 
motto — "Each One to Sponsor One." Only when our Lay 
people, as well as our Clergy, are seriously concerned about 
"Evangelism" will our Churches in East Carolina grow as I feel 
that they should. Our Lord calls us to go out and bring people 
into the fold. In all of our cities and towns of East Carolina 
are people who are not members of any Church, or people who 
have long since lost interest in the Church that they are norm- 
ally members of. If we believe in the faith of Jesus Christ as it 
has come down to us in the Anglican Communion, we should 
feel compelling urge to win these people. Until we Episcopali- 
ans find the fervour, the zeal, and the life and soul-saving com- 
pulsion that characterizes some other Churches (as it should 
characterize all of those who would follow Christ) then our 
Episcopal Church will not grow as it should and will not make 
to God's children the contribution that I am sure the Church 
has been placed in the world to make. Let us try harder in 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 31 

Bishop's Address 

East Carolina to win more people. If "Each one would sponsor 
one" and bring- him or her to their Rector, we would double our 
Communicant strength, not in ten or twenty years but year by 
year, and I am sure that God would rejoice, and would say of 
those who are Episcopalians, "Well done, my good and faithful 
servants." 

THE CHANCELLOR OF THE DIOCESE 

This coming October will mark the 11th year that I have 
been Bishop of this Diocese. During all of these years, the 
Chancellor of the Diocese has been the Hon. Junius D. Grimes, 
Sr., of St. Peter's Church. Washington. I am sure that few per- 
sons in the Diocese fully realize the large amount of time, 
work and consecrated effort that goes into the Office of the 
Chancellor. Many problems have faced the Diocese during 
these years that are not known publically to the Clergy and 
Laity. This past year has been a particularly trying one in this 
regard and the Chancellor has given of his time and efforts, 
liberally and sacrificially. He has helped me with numerous 
difficult, complicated and intricate matters of a legal and can- 
onical nature. Let me, in this Address, express publicly my ap- 
preciation to the Chancellor, not only for his sound, wise, and 
courageous handling of all canonical and legal matters that 
have come before the Diocese during the past ten years, but 
also for his personal counsel and advice. He has been, indeed, 
a true friend and brother to the Bishop of East Carolina and 
for him I am deeply grateful. I hope that he will be Chancellor 
of this Diocese for many years to come. 

COMPLETE DIOCESAN SURVEY 

We are now in the midst of a complete Diocesan Survey, 
authorized by the Convention of the Diocese and conducted by 
our trained Department of Research of the National Council 
of our own Church. Throughout the Diocese, I feel that splen- 
did cooperation is being given at the present time to this effort. 
Under the able leadership of Mr. Stanley Woodland, General 
Chairman of the Survey, and with the constant supervision of 
our efficient Executive Secretary, The Rev. Mr. Allen, I feel 
that the Survey is being handled and conducted in a most ex- 
cellent manner. 

When this Survey is completed, it will serve as a kind of 
"blueprint" for the Diocese for possibly the next 25 to 50 years 
to come, as to where new areas of growth are expected, as to 
where New Churches are needed in our communities, as to 
where and why areas have failed to grow and what we should 
do about them, as to the center of our Diocesan life and Church 
population, and many other questions which we need to have 
answered. The Survey should prove to be of inestimable value 
to the Diocese, and let me in this Convention Address thank 



32 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

the many individuals who are now having, some part in this 
complete Diocesan Survey. Those who are working upon it 
realize its value to the Diocese, and I am sure feel that it will 
have great value in the years to come. 

OUR BUILDERS FOR CHRIST CAMPAIGN 

Our Builders for Christ Campaign, now in its second year, 
is moving along, I believe, to a successful conclusion. I would 
like to take this opportunity to thank our Chairman, Mr. A. H. 
Jeffress, for his fine efforts and the amount of time that he 
has given to this Campaign. Now it is my earnest hope that our 
Diocese can wind up this Campaign completely by September of 
this year, several months ahead of the time schedule for con- 
clusion of the Campaign. These funds for "capital improve- 
ments in the Diocese," which Builders for Christ is intended, 
are badly needed at the present time. Some of the amounts 
have already been called for and necessarily spent, due largely 
to the tragic hurricanes which have twice partially destroyed 
Camp Leach. Let me urge our delegates who are here at this 
Convention to return to their Churches and ask those who have 
made pledges to "Builders for Christ" to pay them by Septem- 
ber, if possible, and let us complete fully and successfully and 
quickly this rather modest Campaign which will, nevertheless, 
mean so much to many areas of our Diocesan life, work, and 
activity. 

THE UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH— 
OUR OWN FINE COLLEGE 

At this Convention you will hear a great deal about our 
Church owned College, Preparatory School and Seminary — the 
University of the South — located at Sewanee, Tenn. 

It is my hope that this Convention will give its enthusiast- 
ic support to the University of the South and to the Campaign 
soon to be launched for the completion of All Saints' Chapel. 

It is my further hope that careful attention will be given at 
this Convention to setting up an organization for this Cam- 
paign in the Diocese of East Carolina. 

I thoroughly endorse this Campaign. 

CONCLUSION 

In closing my Convention address today, I would sound 
a note of optimism — Sometimes in these days and times you 
and I feel greatly discouraged about our work. Sometimes I 
feel discouraged because I do not see more growth in the Dio- 
cese of East Carolina. Sometimes we feel discouraged when 
we read our newspapers and it seems that the Christian Church 
has had so little effect on God's troubled world. One wonders 
sometimes if the Christian Church really is growing and if it 
really is effectively influencing God's world. And yet as one 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 33 

Bishop's Address 

of our great Bishops has recently said — "We are living today 
in the most unusual and exciting period of Christian history, 
although we may not fully realize it. Some men say today 
that the Christian enterprise is losing ground. That in coun- 
try after country it is being submerged by Communism. 
That in other countries it is being overcome by humanism and 
secularism. That Christian Missions do not seem to be getting 
anywhere." 

There is an incident he says in the life of the Prophet Elijah 
in the 9th Century before Christ. There was a terrible drought 
in the Land of Israel. Three long hard years had passed with- 
out rain. The drought had brought famine and starvation. 
The people were desperate. Elijah, the Prophet, went to the 
top of Mount Carmel and threw himself to the ground. He pray- 
ed long and earnestly for "rain." He said finally to his servant, 

— "Go and look toward the sea", — toward the Mediterranean 
(the quarter from which their rain storms usually came.) The 
servant came back and said — "There is nothing." The proph- 
et prayed again and sent his servant the second time. Again the 
servant came back and said — "There is nothing." The Proph- 
et prayed right on and told his servant to go again and again. 
Finally, when the servant came back the 7th time, he said — 
"There is something. There is a cloud rising out of the sea the 
size of a man's hand." Not much of a cloud but it was a cloud, 
and it meant victory. E'er long the rumble of thunder was 
heard and the skies grew black with clouds. The rain came — 
a great and abundant rain. 

It may be that we have been looking out over the world 
for signs of God's victory and saying to ourselves — "There is 
nothing." No signs of progress. After centuries of mission- 
ary effort we have hardly made a dent in the teeming popula- 
tions of the world. In India, we can claim only about four mil- 
lion Christians out of over 200 million people. In Japan we have 
less than 1%. Communism seems to be on the march. Chris- 
tianity seems to have made so little progress. 

And yet let us go look again. Let us look beneath the sur- 
face. Let us look beyond these few statistical facts. The 
Christian Church is growing rapidly today in India — in Japan 

— in Africa and in other parts of the world. Moreover, the 
Christians in those lands are exerting an influence far beyond 
their numbers. In the series of great world conferences since 
1910, the younger churches of the East have become more and 
more powerful. At Edinburgh in 1910 these churches were 
represented by only two or three of their Nationals, at most. 
In Jerusalem in 1928 they formed 25% of the delegation. At 
Madras in 1938 they had more than half of the membership. 
The younger churches of the East are already teaching and 
inspiring the older churches of the West. "American soldiers 
in World War II were converted to Christianity by native

Christians in the New Hebrides." So look again. Never before 
has the Christian Church had such an opportunity and never 
before has it been so strong. These are not my conclusions but 
they are the studied conclusions of the greatest authority on 
this subject, Kenneth Scott Latourette, the author of "The Ex- 
pansion of Christianity." He supports his claim that the Chris- 
tian Church is stronger now than ever before in its history 
with the following facts. For the first time in the history of 
the whole world, there is actually a universal religion at work 

on every continent — in every clime — and among every 

race of man. Witness, for example, the growth of the Church 
in the United States. In the period of the Revolution, only 5% 
of the people belonged to the Church. In 1910 the percentage 
had moved to 43%. In 1956 it is 55%. Witness the growth 
of the Ecumenical Movement, coming to a climax in the forma- 
tion of the World Council of Churches. I will never forget that 
outstanding world Christian meeting in Chicago and Evanston 
which I attended summer before last. This means that the long 
divided Body of Christ is seeking to heal its wounds and to be- 
come at one in faith and work again. Let us go look again. 
There is something. Be ye steadfast. Our labor is not in vain 
for the Lord. Go look again seven times. Cloud or no cloud, w* 
hear the sound of abundant rain.

42 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Standing Committee 

THE EXECUTIVE SECRETARY 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Third Convention of the Diocese of East 
Carolina: — 

It is evident to all of us that the past calendar year in the Diocese 
of East Carolina has been marked by a great deal of activity. There has 
been a lot of going to and fro, with many meetings of various sorts. 
As one surveys the area, he sees much accomplished but, at the same 
time, a great deal more left to be done. My purpose in this brief report 
is not to review the past but to try to point out some of the many open 
doors before us which invite us corporately to move into new ventures 
for our Master. 

This Fall we will have before us a blueprint of our Diocese from the 
current Survey Study which will highlight areas where we should con- 
centrate our efforts. The acceptance of these new challenges will call for 
a renewed consideration of our past methods of church extension, where 
we have in the past gone more or less blindly into new ventures, 
now we will be able to follow trends of Church interest and popu- 
lation, which will insure growth and expansion. The work on the 
part of many to make the Survey Study accurate and valuable, chiefly 
Mr. Stanley Woodland and his assistants, deserves a tribute of praise 
from this Body. These Laymen who have devoted so much time and effort 
throughout the Diocese, I feel sure will be the first group to back up its 
findings and sponsor its recommendations. 

The purpose of the Church is to reach people and confront them 
with the Gospel of redeeming love, but to set out to go everywhere is not 
our first aim, but to go into specific places and challenge specific people. 
We believe with such a plan we can reap a harvest of souls. 

The Department of Promotion, under the capable and enthusiastic 
Chairmanship of Mr. Robert J. Powell, Jr. and his committee will seek in 
the future to promote and set forward a program of advance, using all 
the means available both from the National Department and from the ex- 
periences of other Dioceses. In conference with Mr. Powell, I have sensed 
his desire to make his Department a valuable tool in the hands of every 
Parish and Mission Priest. New ways and means will be offered to make 
the Gospel Message, as we know it in the Episcopal Church, interesting 
and intelligible. There will be calls for financial sacrifice, but only in the 
interest of preserving and clarifying the spiritual. The job here will take 
on a year-round emphasis through every means of expression — preach- 
ing, radio, television — rather than simply a Fall interest by handing out 
materials and pledge cards. These will be continued but there will be 
added many new helps and aids. 

Our Builders for Christ Campaign effort will be continued until the 
full amount has been raised and the original objectives realized. Many 
of our Parishes and Missions have already raised their full quotas. We 
congratulate them. Our Chairman, Mr. A. H. Jeffress, with his District 
Co-Chairmen, are at the present time in the midst of an all out effort to 
speedily conclude this Campaign so that the Diocese can make distribu- 
tion of the funds raised for their original purpose. We are aware that 
this effort began with and continues with the full support of the Con- 
vention of the Diocese and all organizations. It seems well that we con- 
tinually bear this in mind as an accepted commitment. 

At the last meeting of the Diocesan Executive Council a Resolution 
was passed to establish as expeditiously as possible a reasonable mini- 
mum salary scale for all of the Missionary Clergy. This, as a Directive, 
was referred to the Department of Missions, which set out to study every 
Mission field and to work out ways and means, through the cooperation 
of the Diocese and the local Mission Churches, for reaching this goal. 
This effort is now under way and will continue until every sub-standard 






SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 43 

Treasurer's Report 

salary has been brought to the established minimum. All of us feel that 
this will be, indeed, a great incentive for our Missionary Clergy to remain 
for longer periods of service, since in the past we have found out that 
a rapid turnover has been detrimental to the growth of the Church in 
rural areas. 

These are but a few of the immediate tasks which confront us and to 
these, with whatever else God's Holy Spirit might lead us to do for the 
advancement of our Master's Kingdom we shall undertake, putting our 
trust in Him. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Rev.) DANIEL W. ALLEN

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Third Annual Convention of the Diocese 
of East Carolina. 

In accordance with the requirement of Canon 8, Section 1 e, I submit 
herewith a brief report of the actions of the Executive Council. 

Two sections of the Council's report are covered fully in other re- 
ports. This is the annual report of the Treasurer and the budget for 
adoption for the year 1957. 

The Council met twice during the past year on November 3rd, 1955 
and on March 15th, 1956 both times in Wilmington at the Diocesan House. 
A full representation was present both times of lay and clerical members. 

At both meetings financial affairs of the Diocese were reviewed and 
appropriate action taken in this regard. At both meetings all Depart- 
ments and many special committees of the Diocese reported and received 
the advice of the Council. 

The Council has exercised fully its function of administering the 
affairs of the Diocese between Conventions under the leadership of the 
Bishop. Since all Departments and also many special committees will be 
heard at this Convention a detailed report is not needed. 

Both meetings of the Council were held in conjunction with the meet- 
ing of the Finance Department of the Diocese, thus expediting the proper 
carrying out of the financial responsibilities and obligations of the 
Diocese. 

Respectfully submitted, 
ROBERT J. SNELL, 
Secretary

54 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Board of Publications 

THE BOARD OF PUBLICATIONS 

To the Bishop and the 73rd Convention of The Diocese of East Carolina: 

The special committee appointed by the bishop for the publication of 
The Mission Herald, until the time that the bishop appoints a new editor, 
has to date published eight issues. We recognize the difficulty of having 
to assume the responsibility of producing a diocesan paper, altogether 
with voluntary help; but in humility of heart we can truthfully say that 
we have endeavoured to do the best that we could. 

We believe that in order for our diocese to have a diocesan maga- 
zine worthy of this diocese, a magazine that would maintain the intimate 
friendly tone, which has been the policy of The Mission Herald in the 
past; but at the same time a magazine that would be the promotion medi- 
um of all diocesan activities, which this magazine is capable of becom- 
ing, that some provision should be made whereby the future editor of 
The Mission Herald could be able to devote more of his time to the publica- 
tion of The Mission Herald than any of the present staff can possibly 
give at present, as they all have full time jobs in their own respective 
parishes. A man with a small parish could conceivably find plenty of time 
to give to the publication of The Mission Herald; but a man with a large 
parish or several missions cannot do the job which should be done in his 
parish and at the same time publish the kind of diocesan magazine, 
which we would like to see in this diocese. 

The potential of The Mission Herald as a promotion magazine carry- 
ing the news of our diocese and some of the news of the Anglican Com- 
munion throughout the world into every Episcopal home in East Carolina 
is unlimited. We believe, therefore, that the diocesan magazine shall 
be used to help carry the Gospel of Christ to the people of East Carolina. 

We heartily commend to every church and mission that they see that 
an up to date mailing list of their parish or mission is sent every year to 
the Business Manager of The Mission Herald. We want The Mission 
Herald to go to every family in East Carolina; but we cannot send it to 
you, if we do not have your correct address. 

Until some other way can be devised to finance the publication of The 
Mission Herald, and at the same time have the diocesan magazine go 
to every family in this diocese, we heartily commend to the parish 
vestries of East Carolina that they follow the example set by St. Peter's 
Parish in Washington and have a special envelope for The Mission Herald 
inserted in their regular church envelopes.

HUME COX, Acting Chairman

submit herewith the results of such examination on the following ex-

COMMENTS — GENERAL 

Our examination embraced tracing receipts, as shown by the books, 
to the depository. The examiner was advised that during the period 
covered by the examination 50 shares of Cooperative Savings and Loan 
Association Stock invested for the Bishop Darst Memorial Fund were 
redeemed and the proceeds were turned over to the Bishop Darst Memorial 
Fund. All other disbursements were made from the depository, The 
Wilmington Savings and Trust Company, Wilmington, North Carolina, 
and supported by cancelled vouchers. Test checks were made of income 
received from investments and collections on notes. Disbursements were 
accepted as correct and were not verified. Funds on deposit were re- 
counciled with the records of the depository as of December 31, 1955. 
Stocks and bonds, held for safe keeping in a safe deposit box at The 
Bank of Wilmington, Wilmington, North Carolina, were inspected by 
us on March 14, 1956. Other assets are shown as reflected by the books 
and subject to comments of previous reports. 

There is due from the Diocese of East Carolina $100.00 which was 
deposited in error to The Diocese of East Carolina. This amount when 
transferred will be reflected as income in the Robert Strange Memorial. 

The exhibits and schedules, as presented, setting forth the financial 
condition of the Trustees, Diocese of East Carolina, are subject to the 
foregoing comments.

CAMPS AND CONFERENCES, 
BOARD OF MANAGERS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Third Convention of the Diocese of East 
Carolina: 

A meeting of the Camps and Conferences Committee was held on 
March 12, 1956, at which time the main business was to plan for the 
necessary repairs at Camp Leach, resulting from the hurricanes of last 
summer and fall,. to the point whereby camps could be held in the ensuing 
summer. The Rev. Stanleigh Jenkins gave an estimate of what the re- 
pairs would cost, and this report was later conveyed to the Executive 
Council of the Diocese and approved. Part of the money that was allot- 
ed from the Builders of Christ was advanced to Camp Leach to repair the 
damage from the hurricane of 1954, but a small part still remained, and 
it was agreed to place this amount toward the estimated cost of repairs, 
and that the Finance Committee would arrange for the balance. 

It will be noted at a meeting of the Executive Council in November 
1955 "That no long range policy for camps be promulgated until the 
Diocesan Survey is completed and that for the present Camp Leach be 
continued in operation with a minimum of capital improvements." 

The Laymen's Association of the Diocese have informed us that the 
necessary equipment for the kitchen in the building at Bogue Banks is 
being installed and will be ready for use in the summer of 1956. Also that 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 61 

Report — Good Shepard Hospital 

a building - for the use of a care-taker and/or director of activities there 
is to be built. For the building of this unit an anonymous gift of $5000 
has been received, and the laymen have underwritten the balance that will 
be necessary. It is the hope of the laymen that the Conference Center at 
Bogue Banks will be used much more frequently than up to the present 
time. 

Arrangements have been made to conduct a camp for the Negro 
youth of the diocese at the northeast end of Topsail Beach for the summer 
of 1956. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDWIN E. MOSELEY, Chairman 

BOARD OF DIRECTORS— GOOD SHEPHERD 
HOSPITAL— BUSINESS MANAGER'S REPORT 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Third Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina; 

As of December 31st, 1955 we had 32 on our payroll and a monthly 
payroll of $5,500.00. To meet all expenses we must take in $9,000.00 a 
month. Total receipts for 1955 were $120,563.33 (a new high) and ex- 
penses were $117,255.00. A detailed financial report is attached. 

We have completed the following projects during the year: 

1. Installed rotary type roof fans with vents in the hallways and 
insulated the entire ceiling to make the hospital cooler in the 
summer, 

2. A special light louvre was installed in the X-Ray Department at a 
cost of $300.00, 

3. A new binocular microscope was added at a cost of $500.00, 

4. An Executone Paging System was installed at a cost of $450.00, 

5. Additional sundry equipment was obtained for over $1,000.00, 

6. One remaining coal fired boiler was converted to oil at a cost of 
$511.00. 

Part of the cost of this equipment came from money raised on 
"Hospital Day" sponsored by the Inter-collegiate Alumni Club and money 
given by The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of New Bern. 

We have received the following financial assistance: 

From the Welfare Department of Craven County $1,842.00 for carry- 
ing for indigent cases for three months — total cost to us $2,050.00. 

From the North Carolina Medical Care Commission and the North 
Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation Program $4,652.98 for care of their 
indigent patients. 

From the Kate B. Reynold's Trust Fund $1,807.20. 

From the Duke Endowment $2,853.00. 

Woman's Auxiliaries in and out of the Diocese gave over $200.00. 

We are informed we are eligible to receive a grant of $22,900.00 from 
the Ford Foundation. 

The hurricane did over $1,000.00 damage which was covered by in- 
surance only to about $375.00. 

Two Diesel electrical power units and a gasoline water pump have 
been received from the North Carolina Division of Surplus which will 
enable us to give more efficient service in times of power failure. 

Our hopes for 1956 are: 

1. To provide a central storeroom, 

2. To enlarge and modernize the delivery room, 

3. To provide a Record Room, 



62 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Committee on Canons 



4. To build a wing for a cafeteria style kitchen and dining room for 
our employees, 

5. To increase the Nurses' salaries $10.00 for those not living in the 
home.

That Canon 8 entitled "The Executive Council" be supplemented by 
adding at the end of sub-section B of Section 1, the following "The 
Chancellor of the Diocese, the Executive Secretary of the Diocese, and 
the President of the Laymen of the Diocese of East Carolina be and are 
hereby made Ex-Officio members of the Executive Council and they and

and information concerning the pension payments to retired clergy and 
survivors of clergymen and submitted the same to the Secretary of the

tion with the Social Security program before the date of expiration.

Fund and her related organizations — Church Life Insurance Corporation, 
Church Fire Insurance Corporation, and Church Hymnal Corporation — 
for wider use and protection.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON STATUS OF 
PARISHES AND MISSIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Third Convention of the Diocese of East 
Carolina: 

Your Committee, in studying the conditions of the various Parishes 
and Missions of the Diocese, found a number that we felt should be given 
serious consideration, but — for the present — and in awaiting the re- 
sults of the Diocesan Survey — we decided not to make recommendations 
on them at this Convention. (Outstanding among these was St. Paul's. 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 65 

Report — Status of Parishes and Missions to Dioceson Convention 

Clinton, which we are hopeful will become a Full Parish before the next 
Convention). 

We do, however, have recommendations to make on three very out- 
standing churches. 

1. About three years ago St. Andrew's-on-the-Sound, Wrightsville 
Beach, was elevated from a Mission to an aided Parish, by the Convention. 
Their growth and activities, during this period has been phenominal. 
Now they have made application to be admitted to the Convention with 
the status of a Full Parish. 

Your Committee has met with a delegation of the vestry and Wardens 
of this Church and we find that they are now exceeding all of the require- 
ments and financial obligations of a Full Parish. Also they presented 
evidence of their financial responsibility and continual growth which, we 
believe, will enable them to function as a Full Parish. 

Now, therefore, 

Be it resolved: 

That St. Andrew's-on-the-Sound, Wrightsville Beach, N. C. be, and it 
hereby is, admitted to the Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina as 
a Church with Full Parish Status. — Resolution was adopted. 

2. One of the fast growing churches in a rapidly expanding commun- 
ity is St. Philip's Church, Southport. They have made application to be 
removed from the status of a Mission and raised to the status of an Aided 
Parish. 

Your Committee has met with representatives of this Church and 
we find that they are now exceeding the requirements of an Aided Parish 
as set out in Section 5 (2) of Canon 12. At present St. Philip's has three 
missions attached to its field and it was agreed with us that they would 
retain these three Missions for a period of three years or until it was 
agreeable with the Bishop to release one or more of the Missions. In view 
of these conditions, we believe that St. Philip's will be able to function as 
an Aided Parish. 

Now, therefore, 

Be it resolved that: 

St. Philip's, Southport, N. C. be, and it hereby is, admitted to the 
Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina as a Church with the status 
of an Aided Parish. 

Resolution was adopted. 

3. St. Christopher's, Havelock, was organized as a Missionary Con- 
gregation under the sponsorship and financial assistance of the Laymen's 
Association of East Carolina. Since its organization it has grown tre- 
mendously. Two years ago it was admitted to the Convention as a Mis- 
sion Church. During this period it has secured a full time minister. Now 
they are making application to be admitted to the Convention with the 
status of an Aided Parish. 

Your Committee has met with representatives of St. Christopher's and 
we find that they are now exceeding the requirements of an Aided Parish 
as set out in Section 5 (2) of Canon 12. Also they presented evidence of 
financial responsibility and continuing growth which, we believe, will 
enable them to function as an Aided Parish. 

Now, therefore, 

Be it resolved that : 

St. Christopher's, Havelock, N. C, be, and it hereby is, admitted to the 
Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina as a church with the status of 
an Aided Parish. 

Resolution was adopted. 

Your Committee recommends that the Committee on Canons give 
consideration to make the following changes in the Canons: 



66 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Laymen's Association 

1. That Article IV (Personnel of Convention) Section 3 be amended 
to read that Full Parishes be entitled to be represented by four (4) lay 
delegates in each Convention: That Aided Parishes be represented by two 
(2) lay delegates in each Convention. 

2. That Canon 12 (Organization of Parishes and Missions) be amend- 
ed to provide for Aided Parishes to be entitled to a vestry. 

Also your Committee recommends that those Parishes and Missions 
that present at least 8% of their Communicant strength (one half of 
which must be adults) in each year, be specifically recognized at each 
Convention. 

Respectfully submitted, 

STANLEY WOODLAND, Chairman 



LAYMEN'S ASSOCIATION 

To the Bishop and The Seventy-Third Convention of the Diocese of East 
Carolina: 

Bishop Wright, ladies and gentlemen of the Diocesan Convention: 

Our Annual Conference was held at the Alice G. Hoffman Episcopal 
Conference Center at Bogue Banks on May 29, 1955. Dr. Howard V. Harp- 
er, Chairman of the Presiding Bishop's Committee on Laymen's Work, 
addressed the laymen at a morning service held at St. Andrew's Church, 
Morehead City, on the subject of "evangelism" and its application to the 
work of the laymen of the church. Bishop Thomas H. Wright addressed 
the afternoon session on the subject of "What A Lay Ministry Is", stress- 
ing evangelism among our laymen. 

Reports on our activities for the past year were heard as follows: 

1. Completion of Conference Center building at Bogue Banks to be 
known as Laymen's Hall. 

2. Laymen's Thank Offering aggregated $4,189.59. 

3. Financial report of the treasurer. 

Officers elected to conduct the affairs of the Laymen's Association for 
the year 1955-1956 were: W. Iverson Skinner, Williamston, Chairman; 
Frank H. Saunders, Lumberton, Vice-Chairman; James C. Cooke, William- 
ston, Secretary-Treasurer; W. B. Rosevear, Edenton, L.T.O. Chairman; 
C. Kersey Smith, Kinston, Member Executive Council. 

The Annual Provincial Conference held at the University of the 
South, Sewanee, Tennessee, was attended by Messrs. J. McRae Lamb, C. 
K. Smith, Keith Eustler, and their families. 

Later in the summer Mr. W. B. Rosevear attended a Laymen's study 
course also held at Sewanee and returned to the Diocese giving to the 
men of the Diocese the story of the study course in two sessions, one 
session was held for the northern part of the Diocese in Windsor on 
September 10 and the other session was held for the southern part of the 
Diocese at Clinton on September 24. 

Our adopted program for the past year which we have endeavored to 
carry out was : 

1. Continuation of the Havelock project which entails financial sup- 
port to St. Christopher's Church at Havelock in the amount of 
$1150. per year. This commitment was to run for three years and 
we are now in the last year of this obligation. 

2. A continued effort to increase our representation at the Annual 
Provincial Conference. 

3. To develop the evangelistic program of the church as outlined bv 
Dr. Harper and Bishop Wright. 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 67 

Report — Laymen's Association 

4. To further promote the use of "Everyday Inn" coin boxes in con- 
nection with our Whitsunday and Advent Thank Offerings. 

5. To co-operate with the Fourth Province in the education of a Ko- 
rean boy, Choi Chang, who is now going to school at Sewanee. 
Our contribution to this is to continue for four years or until this 
boy completes his Christian education. 

6. To concentrate on the acquisition of furniture and equipment for 
Laymen's Hall. 

Laymen's Thank Offerings for the past year have been somewhat 
disappointing. We had done so well for the past three or four years and 
had shown increases all along. For some reason unbeknown to us the 
Thank Offerings for this past year aggregated only $3,469.01. But we 
feel that with renewed effort we shall top the high figure of year before 
last during the coming twelve months. 

The officers and Executive Committee have done a great deal of 
work these past twelve months towards the development and furnishing 
of Laymen's Hall and improving the Bogue Banks property. In this re- 
spect, we are happy to announce that an anonymous donation of $5,000 
has been made for the purpose of building one housing unit on this Bogue 
Banks property. This housing unit patterned after a motel is now being 
constructed near the original larger building. We hope that this building 
will be available for use at our Annual Conference to be held June 3 at 
the Alice G. Hoffman Conference Center. Then too, following up a reso- 
lution that was passed at the last Annual Conference in connection with 
the furnishing of Laymen's Hall, we are in the process of equipping the 
kitchen, sink, hot water heater, refrigerator, and stove having been 
installed. Furthermore, some furnishings in the way of chairs and cots 
have also been purchased. So gradually step by step and in a slow way 
this facility is being made ready for full usage. 

We have scheduled our Annual Conference to be held at the Confer- 
ence Center on June 3. The conference will begin at St. Paul's, Beaufort, 
our host church, with an 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday morning, June 3. 
Dr. Howard V. Harper, Chairman of the Presiding Bishop's Committee on 
Laymen's Work, will give the address. Immediately afterward the con- 
ference will transfer over to Bogue Banks. In the afternoon we will hear 
an address by Bishop Wright, remarks by Mr. Barry Crim of The Brother- 
hood of St. Andrew, conduct an election of officers and hold a business 
session. 

Beginning on the afternoon of Friday, June 1 there will be a Parish 
Life Study Course conducted by the Rev. E. B. Jeffress, Director of 
Christian Education of the Diocese of North Carolina to continue 
through Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. and to be open to only forty men. 
A committee has been appointed to select these forty men and in so far 
as possible scatter them throughout the Diocese so that they may come 
home to their respective Parishes and give the story of the Conference 
in their area. It is hoped that by the time this study course convenes 
on June 1st that we will have completed our housing unit now in the 
process of construction and that all of the men can be housed and fed 
at the Conference Center, using the facilities which are presently being 
installed in the way of kitchen and dining room equipment. 

Plans are now underway for the full use of the Alice G. Hoffman 
Conference Center for the months of July and August. We hope to hold 
one and two week conferences during these two months under the direc- 
tion of the clergy, for older groups of our young people and adults. Wc 
are hoping that plans for these months activities will be shaped up enough 
to announce at the Annual Conference on June 3. 

We have for some time been searching for a medium that will inject 
more spiritualism into the lives of our Laymen of East Carolina. We be- 
lieve that we have found the answer in the Brotherhood of St. Andrew 



DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report — President Woman's Auxiliary 

and an effort will be made for the next twelve months to add to the three 
chapters which have already been established. This has been strongly 
recommended by the Presiding Bishop's Committee on Laymen's Work and 
all of our Laymen are urged to investigate the possibility of establishing 
a chapter or chapters in their local Parishes. 

Much has been said about a spirit of non-cooperation that existed 
between the Laymen's Association and some of our clergy. We certainly 
want to go on record as being strongly in favor of the utmost co-operation 
with the clergy and we are suggesting that a team of laymen meet with 
the clergy at one or more of their conferences and discuss matters that 
we might be helpful in from their standpoint and we to let the clergy 
know some of the things that they might do that would be helpful to us. 
It is our sincere belief that such get-togethers will be of mutual benefit. 
So the opportunity of sitting down together and ironing out our problems 
in an effort to build a stronger Diocese for Christ's Kingdom is welcome. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. IVERSON SKINNER, Chairman 



WOMAN'S AUXILIARY PRESIDENT 

To Bishop Wright, and the Seventy-Third Convention of the Diocese: 

I bring greetings to this Seventy-Third Annual Convention from the 
Women of the Diocese. 

We felt that we benefited by our joint meeting with you in 1955 and 
missed being together this year. 

We have already had our 1956 Annual Meeting, in Fayetteville, 
April 11 and 12. The Women were pleased to have with them eighteen 
members of the clergy. Our program gave variety. Mrs. Arthur Sher- 
man, Executive Secretary of the Woman's Auxiliary, gave us the 
broader view of the whole Auxiliary and presented plans for this 
Triennium while Sister Kitchens of the Church Army told hair-raising 
stories of her work among the Ute Indians, and then the tender appeal- 
ing story of children at the Thompson Orphanage as told by the mother to 
them all, Mrs. Whisnant. 

I seemed to lean heavily on the men this year. The Rev. Mr. Allen 
brought us up to date on the Builders for Christ campaign. 

The Rev. Messrs. Jenkins and Waterhouse on Camp Leach and 
Kanuga and the Rev. Ralph Smith gave an inspiring meditation. 

At our Evening service The Rev. Mr. George Alexander preached on 
the theme of our meeting and the Bishop brought it all to a great climax 
in his address to us. Our offering, more always comes in afterwards, 
was $1553 for the Bishop's Fund. 

I can report an exceptionally good year. Some of us had the oppor- 
tunity of going to Honolulu. We went as individuals but when we left 
we felt very deeply our individuality had melted into a oneness with our 
fellow workers throughout the world. We learned to love, share and 
serve and to be ever mindful to bear witness to Christ and to His Church. 

That meeting set the keynote for our year's work. We brought back 
a Standard to hold before the women and they have tried to apply this 
to their lives. There is nothing that belongs strictly to the women in 
that Standard. I pass it on to you, for it is worthy of your consideration. 
You and I are witnesses together and these are suggestions as to how 
we can better witness: 

(1) Live a joyous, courageous Christian life. 

(2) Put Christian love into action in our families. 

(3) Have reality in our Prayer and Worship. 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 69 



Report — President Woman's Auxiliary 



(4) Demonstrate Christian Concern for the Standard in our social 
life. 

(5) To understand and practice stewardship. 

(6) To have a growing knowledge of God's Purpose for His world. 
There are approximately 4,000 women who are members of our 

Church in East Carolina. These women are not banded together in an 
organization apart but they are the Church's women banded together 
to carry out the Church's work. 

In Honolulu the Budget of the United Thank Offering was adopted. 
The women allocated the offering of the more than three million dollars. 

The two largest items were one and a quarter million for the Gen- 
eral Church program (one-sixth of the budget adopted by General 
Convention for this year) one million one hundred thousand for capi- 
tal gifts, such as new buildings and property. The smaller items. 
and not so small at that, were for support of Church work, pensions and 
cooperative inter-denominational missionary projects. The Women of 
East Carolina placed a certificate for over $36,000 on the Golden Alms 
basin — our share of the three million. 

We have seventy-five Auxiliary branches, ranging in size from 
two missions with only two women members to four hundred women 
in the largest parish, with a flexible program to include all groups. 

We have an apportionment plan with a very small budget. This 
budget includes corporate gifts, for which we work together, for missions 
within the Diocese and beyond. It also includes administrative and 
Triennial funds. Last year the budget was $4,500 but the women 
made through their efforts or gave of their own $71,000. It is interesting 
to note that the smaller groups give far more per capita. 

One small group of 16 averaged $76 a member. You realize of course 
this is over their pledge to their church. Some gave $67 and so on down 
the scale. In some cases the smaller groups gave seven times that of 
the larger parishes. 

The generosity of the women shows a real love for God — a concern 
for mankind and a zeal for the spreading of the Gospel. 

We have been conscious of the needs of our own Diocese and have 
been ever ready to uphold our Bishop in the work he is striving to do. 
Upon his advice and approval we have given to Diocesan projects. 

The situation at Camp Leach was presented to the Executive Board 
just prior to our Annual Meeting and the Board voted to help to the 
extent of $400 which we wished to be used towards the building of a new 
Infirmary. Also at that same meeting we voted to put $450 in our 1957 
Budget to help buy a lot at Havelock in order to build two new Sunday 
School rooms. 

But figures do not tell the whole story. Worship has been the center 
of all that the women do. The program includes Study and Service. 
Study — that they might better understand God's children with whom they 
are concerned. Study — that they might better understand God's pur- 
pose in life for them. 

Through Service — The women have sought out those whom they 
might help — giving aid for their physical needs and perhaps love to those 
who seem to be "forgotten of men." 

I can report to you that the Women of East Carolina can say — 

They are the service of the womanhood of the church of the Living 
God, banded together to extend the Kingdom of our Lord and to witness 
to His Compelling Power. 

They are glad Service for their Master. 

They are the Heart of the Womanhood of the Church of the Living 
God — They pulse with sympathy, tenderness and love, seeking to ex- 



70 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — St. Mary's Junior College 

press a living Gospel in all their duties, pleasures and relationships. 

They overflow to those who suffer wrong, who carry burdens and 
who have been touched by this world's distress and need a helping hand. 

They are the heart that beats for their Master. 

They are the Prayer of the Womanhood of the Church of the 
Living God. 

They praise Him for the opportunities opened to them to witness for 
Him and to prove their loyalty through devoted Service. 

They listen to His voice and are ready to obey, should He call 
them to radiate His love at home or abroad. 

They kneel at God's Altar in corporate Communion offering and pre- 
senting themselves, their souls and bodies to be a reasonable, holy and 
living sacrifice to Him, petitioning that they may rise to newness of 
life, equipped for the highest service. 

They are the prayer that pleads without ceasing. 

All this they do not of themselves but through Christ who leads 
and guides them. 

I ask you to "Ponder anew what the Almighty can do." 

Respectfully submitted, 

FANNIE GRAINGER TAYLOR 



ST. MARY'S JUNIOR COLLEGE 

To The Bishop and The Seventy-Third Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: 

It is with pleasure that I report to you the progress that has been 
made at St. Mary's during the year 1955-56. At the same time some 
information can be given about the hopes and plans for the future. 

As in the years of the past, the enrollment of new students started 
early in the previous year. It was necessary to establish a waiting list 
by March 1, 1955. Had space been available, total enrollment would 
have increased substantially. A noticeable shift has occurred in recent 
years in the classification of those entering St. Mary's for the first time. 
The high school department has declined in numbers and the college 
section has increased rapidly. The senior class of 1956 is by far the 
largest in the history of St. Mary's. More than two-thirds of the stu- 
dent body is enrolled in college work this year. 

A trend that has been seen in previous reports continued this year. 
There has been a greater need for scholarships and financial assistance 
than ever before. Our scholarships are growing but not as rapidly as the 
need for them. Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Heyward added another $3,000 to 
the corpus of the Emma Barnwell Heyward Scholarship Fund during 
the present year. 

Mrs. Ernest Cruikshank, president of St. Mary's 1932-1946, died 
during the Christmas season. In the death of Mrs. Cruikshank St. 
Mary's lost one of its best friends. The courage and foresight that she 
brought to the campus in the dark days of the depression helped the 
college weather one of the most serious periods of its long history. Mrs. 
Cruikshank's insistence upon academic excellence had much to do with 
the high standing that St. Mary's enjoys today. Her influence will long 
be felt on the campus. 

Several important physical changes took place during the year. 
The old study hall was made into three small parlors and into quarters for 
the dean of students. This change helped improve two conditions that 
were in need of attention. Students had only one room (the large formal 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 71 

Report — Thompson Orphanage 

parlor) in which to visit with their friends. They now have three addi 
tional dating rooms, one of which is arranged as a television room. The 
dean of students formerly lived on a dormitory hall and had her office 
in another building. She now has a spacious office on the first floor 
of Smedes with bedroom and bath connecting. 

At the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees in 1954 your 
president discussed the plan of providing additional dormitory space 
through the use of a loan from the Home and Housing Finance Agency 
of the Federal Government. These plans have now matured. The loan 
of $200,000 has been approved for a forty year term at 2 3 A%. Bids 
have been opened on plans drawn by Edwards, McKimmon and Ethe- 
redge and the contract for building awarded. The dormitory will house 
56 students and will be ready for use at the beginning of the 1957-58 
session. 

The several owning dioceses included St. Mary's in their budgets 
during 1956 for the following amounts: North Carolina $7,500; East 
Carolina $1,000; Upper South Carolina $500; South Carolina $300; and 
Western North Carolina $200. In addition to these sums a large num- 
ber of parishes in the Diocese of North Carolina, and a few elsewhere, 
have included St. Mary's in their budgets for sums of $200 or less. 
Even with this increased support added to the income earned by the 
small endowment, student fees still bear about 94% of the operating- 
budget. 

Enrollment prospects for 1956 are excellent and plans are now be- 
ing made for the next session. During the summer the usual renovation 
will take place. 

Respectfully submitted, 
RICHARD G. STONE, 
President. 



THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

To The Bishop and the Seventy-Third Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: 

Thinking back over 1955 and taking stock of our assets and liabili- 
ties the first thing that I would like to report about is our group of 
children as I consider them our most important asset. Sometimes I feel 
that when I make a talk to our various church groups I am inclined 
to "skip lightly" over our children and talk about other things and par- 
ticularly the farm. Maybe the reason for this is due to the fact that 
our farm plays such a vital part in our program here. Getting back to 
our children, 1 want to teK you that our policy for admission is based 
entirely on need and since we do not charge a fee we cater to that 
group of children who are unable to pay for their care elsewhere. In 
recent years this has been our policy. Because of this policy we have a 
rather narrow field to work in. Our children come from all over the 
State of North Carolina and our 1955 population is divided as follows: 
Orphans 9; Mother dead 22; Father dead 28; Both parents living 10. 

You will notice from the above chart that the majority of our chil- 
dren either have one or both parents dead. In most cases the children 
that we accept have experienced social problems and conditions of live- 
lihood that are beyond the comprehension of most of us. This makes it 
difficult to deal with our children. The first thing that we try to do is 
to assure him that his physical needs are going to be cared for and that 
we want him to help us build his body and mind into a normal and use- 
ful citizen for our community and state. It takes some months before 



72 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Thompson Orphanage 



any improvement is noticed. As our children attend the city public 
schools usually the first noticeable improvement has something to do 
with his schooling. 

I am happy to say that each year seems to show an improvement 
over the orevious school year. The results of the school year 1954-55 
are as follows: 24 "A's"; 22 "B's"; 12 "C's". I believe you will agree 
with me that this is a very enviable record. In addition to these public 
school children we had one boy to graduate from Cornell University 
and we had one girl to complete a business course. AVe now have a girl 
at Richmond Professional Institute, a senior at N. C. State, and a 
freshman at the University of North Carolina. 

For a long time I have worked toward having some security for the 
boys and girls who qualify for a college education and also some means 
of preparing the boy or girl who needs training in the trade field in 
order to make a good living. In recent years I have received help from 
the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina and the 
Minnie L. Gocking Memorial Fund and this year The Minor Foundation, 
Incorporated has set up a trust fund to help with the education of our 
boys and girls. This is very gratifying to me in that now when I talk 
with a boy or girl I can assure them that we are able to take care of 
their educational needs in such a way that they will not be handicapped 
or burdened with a debt at a time in their life when they are just get- 
ting started. 

I think that one of the most important functions of our program 
here is our cottage life. As you know each of our cottages is supervised 
by a matron. In reality this matron is a substitute mother. Much depends 
on her ability to help the children under her care to realize that they 
are no different from other boys and girls and that they must act like 
other boys and girls and conduct themselves in such a way that people 
will want to help them. This, I believe, is shown in our children because 
oftentimes the adult people with whom our children make contact are 
very complimentary in speaking of the manners and conduct of our 
children. 

It seems to me that today the parental control of children has 
loosened to such an extent that it is very noticeable everywhere you 
go. The boy or girl who behaves himself really makes a favorable im- 
pression. 

I believe strongly that one of the reasons that our boys and girls 
are content and are willing to put forth that extra effort is because 
of our work program. Almost every boy and girl that we have is in- 
cluded in our farm program. We also have a very active 4-H Club. 
Our boys and girls win blue ribbons practically all the time and it keeps 
me busy trying to find new projects to keep their work from becoming 
monotonous. 

After experiencing a very dry 1954 season we had an about face in 
weather conditions in 1955 and had the best growing season in our lo- 
cality in a number of years. As a result our farm produced meat and 
vegetables worth $6,814.90; hay, straw, and grain $7,236.60; eggs $3,- 
409.89; and milk $9,278.60; for a total of $26,739.99. We found that in 
order to have a constant milk and egg supply it was necessary to have 
and dentists of this community for our children. All of their medical and 
a surplus. We sell our surplus milk and eggs and this year we sold 
$8,080.25. 

I have often made the statement that if it cost us money to op- 
erate our farm it would be worth more than I can estimate in training 
for our children. 

I would not feel right in my heart in making this report to you if 
1 did not say something about the fine work done by the good doctors 



SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 73 

Report — Thompson Orphanage 

Orphanage. This work is given in a very gracious manner and each child 
feels that he has a private doctor or dentist of his own. The doctors 
often tell me that it is a pleasure to look after our children because of 
their conduct and attitude. They say it is very unusual for a child to 
thank them for administering a shot with a needle. That is the reason 
why they like to help our boys and girls. 

Realizing that this report will probably be printed in our Diocesan 
Journals I would like to give the results of the Thanksgiving Offering 
that I have received to date. (January 27, 1956) 

Diocese of East Carolina $5,799.69 

Diocese of North Carolina 23,726.29 

Diocese of Western North Carolina 2,551.39 

I want to conclude my report by thanking all of you who have 
contributed to the Thompson Orphanage and I would like to invite you 
to visit us and become better acquainted with our work. 



Respectfully submitted, 

M. D. WHISNANT, 

Superintendent.

end Thomas P. Noe. From his early youth he has labored 
untiringly for the Great Cause, and now, as the evening of life 
approaches, he tells us that he and his good wife have decided 
that at their death the Diocese will receive approximately 
$100,000. This accumulation has been by small sums, care- 
fully husbanded, and no doubt at the sacrifice of many com- 
forts and pleasures which could have been enjoyed. 

For the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Noe, as shining examples of 
service and unselfishness, and for the wonderful gift to be 
made by them to this Diocese, we now record our grateful

26 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

BISHOP'S ADDRESS 

Brethren of the Clergy and Laity: 

"Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and 
the Lord Jesus Christ." 

I welcome you today to the Seventy-Fourth Annual Con- 
vention of the Diocese of East Carolina, and the 12th over 
which I have had the privilege of presiding. 

We are meeting today in historic St. Paul's Church, Beau- 
fort, at a time when this year, 1957, marks the 100th anniver- 
sary of the building of this Church. The cornerstone of the 
Church was laid on April 14, 1857 and the work of construct- 
ing the Church was started on May 14. By August 12, 1857, 
the work had progressed so far that we can see from the rec- 
ords that a contract was let to have the Church painted. The 
first services were held in the new Church on Sunday, No- 
vember 22, 1857. The Church, however, was not Consecrated 
until almost four years later — namely, May 21, 1861 by the 
Rt. Rev. Thomas Atkinson, Bishop of North Carolina, assist- 
ed by the first Rector of St. Paul's, the Rev. D. D. Antwerp 
and the Rev. A. A. Watson, who was the Rector of Christ 
Church in New Bern. 

Through the years many improvements have been made 
in the interior of the original Church and many memorial 
gifts have been received to enhance its beauty. In 1929 a pipe 
organ was given by Mr. Earl Webb in memory of Miss Ann 
O'Bryan, granddaughter of Mrs. N. W. Taylor, greatly beloved 
by this whole Congregation, and in more recent years three 
beautiful stained glass windows were given in memory of Mrs. 
Claude Wheatley, a member of our Diocesan Executive Coun- 
cil, and were dedicated by the present Bishop of the Diocese. 
Later, a beautiful transom window was given in memory of Mr. 
W. A. Mace, Sr., and Memorial Cathedral Lights have been 
installed in the Church, with other beautiful and fitting me- 
morials. 

During its 100 years of existence, 22 Rectors have served 
St. Paul's Church, Beaufort. One of these, the Rev. Thomas 
P. Noe, who served from 1899 to 1906 rendered invaluable 
service to the Church and the community and is present with 
us in this Convention today. The present Rector of St. Paul's, 
the Rev. C. Edward Sharp, is following in the steps of many 
of his illustrious predecessors and is loved, admired and re- 
spected throughout this community and throughout the Dio- 
cese of East Carolina. 

St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, therefore, has a long record 
of fine usefulness in the Diocese and I know that I speak for 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 27 

Bishop's Address 

all present when I say how happy we are to be here and when 
I extend to St. Paul's Church our appreciation for their most 
gracious invitation and their cordial hospitality on this occa- 
sion of the Centennial Celebration of this fine Church.

R. Rountree and the Rev. George Frank Hill have retired 
from active service and tribute has been paid elsewhere to 
the faithful, devoted and outstanding work done by these 
two loyal servants of our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. 

CONFIRMATIONS DURING THE PAST YEAR 

For the past four year, in my Convention Address I have 
reported " the largest number of Confirmations in the history 
of the Diocese." Again this year, for the fifth time, I am hap- 
py to make that same statement. As you will recall, last year 
I reported the total number of Confirmations as 499. I must 
confess to you that I tried hard to find the one additional 
Confirmation to make the number an even 500 because this 
has long been the goal of our Diocese. This year I am happy 
to report that the total number of Confirmations is 535. 
I am sure that this Convention will be proud of what the Rec- 
tors of our Churches have done and I most assuredly wish to 
commend and congratulate many of our Churches for the 
large Confirmation classes that they have presented during 
the past year. 

And yet, my Brethren, as I have said each year that I 
have been here for the past eleven years, our Confirmations 
are not large enough and many of our Churches are falling 
far short of what I consider the proper number of Confirma- 
tions each year to assure a normal growth. As I have said 
many times, I feel that unless a Church confirms 8% of 
its communicant strength each year, with half of those being 
confirmed being, adults, that the Church is not showing a nor- 
mal growth. Let me urge all of us to again have this on our 
hearts and minds this coming year and let me plead with the 
Rectors and Vestries present today to think seriously of this 
matter, in terms of evangelism and the need of our Church 
to win more adults in our communities through confirmation. 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 29 

Bishop's Address 

CHURCH CONSTRUCTION IN THE DIOCESE 

During the past year, a great deal of Church construction 
has taken place in the Diocese and a number of Parishes are 
contemplating new buildings or additions. I feel that this 
is, indeed, a healthy sign of growth. Although it is hard to 
estimate the total funds spent on Church improvement and 
the total amount of materials given for improvement, with- 
out cost, it is my belief that during the past ten years ap- 
proximately 3/4ths of a million dollars in Church construc- 
tion and improvement has taken place in the Diocese of East 
Carolina. Five new Churches have been built, eleven new 
Parish Houses have been built, 16 new Rectories have been 
built, and innumerable additions and renovations have taken 
place throughout the Diocese. I believe that a building 
Church is an interested and growing Church and affects for 
good the spiritual life of a Parish, as well as the material 
growth of the Parish. 

A NEW MISSIONARY VENTURE 

Ever since I have been Bishop of East Carolina, one of 
my ambitions has been to promote the work of our Church 
along the area known as the Outer Banks, stretching down 
the remote coastal regions of our Diocese. This objective 
has come to realization slowly but I now feel that the Diocese 
is finally moving forward with this truly unique missionary 
opportunity. Effective March 1st, the Rev. Robert W. Turner 
went to Nags Head as Priest-in-Charge of St. Andrew's-by- 
the-Sea. The Rev. Mr. Turner has a fine record of usefulness 
as one of our outstanding Missionaries, serving both at home 
and abroad. He served for five years as a Missionary of our 
National Council in the Panama Canal Zone and, in recent 
years, has been City Missionary for the City of Nashville, 
Tennessee. I know of no man more qualified to pursue the 
missionary work of our Church along the Outer Banks. Al- 
ready we are seeing results from his work and it is hoped 
that soon facilities will be provided him to conduct services 
along the Outer Banks. We are hoping to procure what is 
known as a "Chapel on Wheels" where by the Church can be 
taken to small groups and the Gospel preached from this 
moveable Chapel on Wheels. As the Clergy will recall, one 
of this year's Lenten Mite Box projects was for "Chapels on 
Wheels" and it is our hope that one of these will soon be avail- 
able for Mr. Turner and that the Ministry of our Church will 
be expanded through this truly great missionary endeavor. 

YOUNG MEN FOR THE MINISTRY 

Perhaps there is no area of my work that gives me great- 
er concern than the small number of young men who are en- 



30 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

tering the Ministry of the Church from our Diocese. We have 
never sent enough young men into the Ministry and this ob- 
jective must have priority during the coming year. In order 
to implement this immediately a Conference on the Ministry 
will be held directly after this Convention in St. Paul's Church, 
Greenville, under the leadership of the Rev. John Drake, Rec- 
tor of St. Paul's. I understand that approximately 50 young 
men will attend this Conference and it is at least a start in the 
right direction. In the last analysis, however, it must be the 
Clergy of each particular Parish who present the Ministry to 
their young men— and let me urge us, this coming year, to 
pray about this matter, to give it serious attention, to take 
or send young men to Conferences on the Ministry, and to open 
up every available avenue to be sure that the promising and 
outstanding young men of our Churches are adequately pre- 
sented the cause of the Ministry of Jesus Christ. Nothing, 
could be as important as this and if this Convention Address 
has any priorities this must, by all means, be considered first. 

DIOCESAN DIRECTOR OF 
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND YOUTH WORK 

In this Convention Address, I would like to say again 
exactly what I said about this subject in my Convention Ad- 
dress last year. I speak again, partly for the Clergy of our 
Diocese, when I say that most of them feel intensely the need 
for a "Diocesan Director of Christian Education and Youth 
Work." For the past seven years, a new movement in Christ- 
ian Education has been slowly winning and deepening the 
lives of our people. For the Clergy, the Churches, and the 
Diocese to take full advantage of this, it is almost a necessity 
to employ someone trained in the New Curriculum of the 
Church. It is my hope that this Convention will see fit to 
make possible the employment of such a Clergyman, on a full- 
time basis. 

Let me say, most emphatically, however, that I feel that 
if such a Priest is employed, that this item should be taken 
care of in the budget being presented to this Convention. I do 
not feel that this salary should come from Diocesan reserves 
(whatever reserve we have should be retained for the pro- 
tection of Missionary Clergy salaries in this Diocese.) 

Again, this would be a continuing salary and reserves 
would not continue long but would be quickly depleted. We 
could not employ a man for one year, or two years, etc., and 
then drop him. 

Let me say, as I have said before, that I do not think this 
Convention should be afraid of a large budget. The amount of 
good Christian work that we do is largely in proportion to our 
budget. With a small budget, we do a small piece of Christian 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 31 

Bishop's Address 

work. With a large budget, we do a large piece of Christian 
work. Let us not be afraid of a large budget. Frankly, I 
travel about the Diocese constantly and I know literally of no 
Episcopalians who seem to me to be suffering because of 
their contributions to the Church. I hope that this Conven- 
tion will give serious consideration to this matter, which is in 
line of Diocesan progress and should come as soon as we are 
able to handle it financially. 

OUR LAYMEN'S ASSOCIATION 

In this Convention Address, I would like to again commend 
the officers of our Laymen's Association for their devotion, 
consecration and earnestness, and for the many, many hours 
of hard work each month that they give to the promotion of 
our Laymen's work and activities. Particularly would I like 
to commend Mr. Frank H. Saunders, the President of the As- 
sociation this year, who, although he holds down a difficult 
executive position, is never too busy to travel about the Dio- 
cese at any time that he is asked to do so, to speak to our 
Laymen, to confer with groups of them and to stimulate the 
work and activity of the organization. 

Although many of our Churches have very active Lay- 
men's groups, it is my feeling that many of them exist only 
on paper. It is my belief that some stimulation is needed in 
a great many of our Laymen's organizations (on paper) and 
I would suggest that this year we return to the plan of a Key 
Layman in each Church, seeking to find the very best possi- 
ble Layman for this work. The potential and possibilities of 
our Laymen of East Carolina is very great and, frankly, I do 
not think that we have yet begun to tap the resources of lead- 
ership, of spiritual power and growth. Let me urge the Lay- 
men present, therefore, to go back to their Parishes, seeking 
among other things to give new life and vigor to their Lay- 
men's organization which will, in turn, be felt in our Diocesan 
Laymen's Association as a whole. 

THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL 

The members of this Convention who have visited the 
Good Shepherd Hospital during the past year have been aware, 
I am sure, of the enlarged usefulness of the Hospital and of 
the greater service that it is now rendering in the City of 
New Bern and adjacent counties. Under the fine and able 
leadership of Dr. Lulu Disosway, Resident Physician, and Mr. 
0. T. Faison, Business Manager, the Hospital has greatly ex- 
panded its usefulness and effectiveness. We were happy to 
receive a gift this past year from both The Ford Foundation 
and The Duke Foundation and, with other contributions, con- 
struction is now taking place at the Hospital which will enable 



32 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

us to care for more patients and to give to many others the 
healing Ministry of Christ. In this Convention Address, I 
would like to commend Mr. John G. Dunn, Jr., the Chairman 
of our Hospital Board, and the other members of the Board 
who are serving in this capacity. 

THE NORTH CAROLINA COUNCIL OF CHURCHES 

For many years, our Diocese has been a member of the 
North Carolina Council of Churches and a token item in the 
budget has been placed there each year for this most worth- 
while cooperative and ecumenical work. It has been hoped 
that our Parishes throughout the Diocese would, likewise, 
place an item in their budgets and list their Churches as mem- 
bers of the Council of Churches. I do not believe that many 
of our Parishes have done this and it is my hope that during 
the coming year many of them will do so. A large part of the 
budget of the North Carolina Council of Churches is used in 
the Eastern part of the State in service rendered to migrant 
workers and the responsibility for this phase of the Council's 
program should be largely those of us who reside in this sec- 
tion. Again, this is our method of Church cooperation with 
other bodies and our practical and outward expression of ecu- 
menicity. Our Anglican Communion is a most worthwhile part 
of the World Council of Churches. Our Episcopal Church in 
America is a most worthwhile part of The National Council 
of Churches of Christ in America and our own Presiding Bish- 
op was the first President of this. Our Church at the top 
level, therefore, is committed to this cause. But if we fail to 
cooperate at the grass roots we have, indeed, cut the growth 
out from under all that is being done for Church unity and co- 
operation in the world at large. Let me urge this Convention 
therefore, to take this message back home and to give our 
added loyalty to the North Carolina Council of Churches. You 
will note that a larger item in the budget is being proposed to- 
day for this cooperative and ecumenical movement. 

THE DIOCESAN SURVEY 

As all of you are aware, a complete Diocesan Survey was 
undertaken in the Diocese during the past year. This Sur- 
vey had been voted by the two previous Conventions and the 
Diocese was carrying out this instruction. I feel that where 
the Diocesan Survey was taken seriously by a Church that it 
proved to be of inestimable value to that Church in enabling 
the Church to evaluate itself, to look backward at what had 
been accomplished by the Parish in the past ten to twenty 
years and to look forward with a kind of blueprint for the next 
ten to twenty years in the future. I feel that for years to 
come we will be most thankful that we undertook this Sur- 
vey and I would like, at this time, to express my appreciation 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 33 

Bishop's Address 

to the Lay Commissioners throughout the Diocese who gave 
so much of their time, effort and loyalty to this. Also, I 
would like to commend our able Executive Secretary, the Rev. 
Daniel W. Allen, who coordinated the work of the Survey and 
its various objectives. 

It was the understanding of the Diocese that long before 
this time the report of the Survey would be available and that 
particularly available to this Convention. Due to various 
causes, however, some of them our own fault, in the lateness 
of some parishes with their reports and some of them beyond 
our control, due to difficulties which arose in the Survey head- 
quarters in Chicago, the earliest date that the Survey Direc- 
tors have been able to give us for our report is this coming 
September. During the month of September, therefore, the 
Clergy of the Diocese, and later the Lay Commissioners of the 
Diocese, will be called together to hear the report of the full 
Diocesan Survey, which will be given to us by Dr. Joseph 
Moore and his Associates, representing the Unit of Research 
in their Chicago office. 

CHURCHES NEAR ARMED FORCES INSTALLATIONS 

There have always been many missionary opportunities 
in the Diocese of East Carolina and for these missionary ven- 
tures we always rejoice. At the present time, among those, is 
the opportunity for the services of our Churches located near 
the nine Armed Forces installations scattered throughout East 
Carolina. The Diocese should be proud of the work that is 
taking place in some of these and should constantly be aware 
of the extra strain upon the local Parish and its Rector, and 
of the extra-parochial nature of this missionary task. 

Of particular need at the present time is St. Anne's Church 
in Jacksonville, which is located near Camp Lejeune, the larg- 
est Marine Base in the world. Many of our Episcopal young 
men, and others, seek the Ministry of the Church through St. 
Anne's Church, Jacksonville, and the facilities of this Church 
have long been inadequate. St. Anne's was built about the 
middle of the last War, of perhaps the cheapest possible ma- 
terial, and through these past 15 years not only has the 
Church become more and more inadequate but the location 
of the Church more and more inaccessible. The Diocese is 
now cooperating with the Rector and Vestry of St. Anne's 
and we are attempting to build a new and worthy Church for 
this strategic community. I am happy to report in this Con- 
vention Address that the National Episcopal Church Founda- 
tion has approved a loan to the Diocese for St. Anne's Church 
of $30,000, repayable in ten years, without interest, and the 
Emergency Loan Fund of the National Council has approveo 
another loan to the Diocese for St. Anne's Church of $20,000, 
making a total of $50,000, without interest, repayable in ten 



34 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

and eight years, respectively. With other resources which are 
being made available, plans are now being drawn for a $100,- 
000.00 Church in Jacksonville and I feel that this will, indeed, 
be a real step forward in serving better the young men in our 
Armed Forces. 

THE EAST CAROLINA FOUNDATION 

At the last Convention, an outstanding address was made 
by Mr. Will G. Gaither, in which he told the Convention that 
the Charter of the East Carolina Episcopal Church Foundation 
was being reactivated and in which he outlined the ambitions 
and hopes of many of us to make the Foundation a reality 
and not in name only. Since that time and during the past 
year several meetings have been held of the new Trustees of 
the Foundation. A vast amount of work has been done by our 
able Chancellor, Mr. Junius D. Grimes, and the Foundation of 
the Episcopal Church in East Carolina is now, indeed, a reality. 
At this Convention you will receive a pamphlet setting forth 
the objectives of the Foundation, a report will be given by Mr. 
Gaither bringing the Convention up-to-date on our work for 
the Foundation, and I trust that this message will be carried 
home by every member of this Convention and that our East 
Carolina Foundation will prove to be a great power for effec- 
tive usefulness in the years to come. 

A NEW DIOCESAN VENTURE— THROUGH PRAYER 

Finally, the last objective that I would hold before you is 
something that has been suggested to me by one of our Clergy- 
men, the Rev. John W. Drake. His suggestion, which I think 
is an excellent one, is that we have a Diocesan Cycle of Prayer 
and Holy Communion for the extension of the Church in East 
Carolina. 

Let me suggest, therefore, that this coming year, beginning 
in September, we have a Diocesan Cycle of Special Communion 
Services around the Diocese, praying for the extension of the 
Church and for the Evangelism of the Church in this Diocese. 
These Services will be arranged from my office and each 
Church will soon received a copy indicating the specially desig- 
nated day for each Church in the Diocese. In addition, I ex- 
pect to send a specially authorized prayer to be used in each 
Church at regular Services — that praying together and re- 
ceiving the Holy Eucharist together with this special intent, 
we may bring, to bear upon our Diocese the tremendous impact 
of a great spiritual force. 

In conclusion, I would like to say as the Bishop of Michigan 
has said in a recent book — "The basic unit of the Church's life 
is not the Diocese but it is the individual Parish or Mission." 
The health of the Church depends upon the health of this 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 35 

Summary of Bishop's Diary 

particular unit. It is at the Parish or Mission level that the 
great battle of the Church's life is fought. If we succeed 
here, developing strong and thriving Parishes or Missions, we 
succeed everywhere. If we fail here, we fail everywhere. It 
is at the Parish or Mission level that our people grow or do 
not grow in grace and in favor with God and man. It is here 
that converts are made or not made. It is from here that 
young men go or do not go into the Ministry. It is from this 
source that missionary giving goes or does not go unto the 
ends of the world. 

The Diocese of East Carolina, therefore, exists to serve the 
Parishes and Missions of the Diocese. And to extend them 
out into the missionary world of Jesus Christ. All of our pro- 
grams and all of our efforts are geared toward this one great 
objective. Working together, may we bring to pass what God 
has in mind for us. In the words of William Carey, always 
"Attempting great things together for God and expecting 
great things from God."

SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 57 

Report — Executive Secretary 

REPORT OF EXECUTIVE SECRETARY 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

A report of my activities for the calendar year has been given to 
Bishop Wright, as I have worked from month to month under his di- 
rection. We have kept in close touch with all vacant parishes and 
missions and endeavored to maintain services and assure them of 
Priestly ministrations when needed. Throughout the year there has 
been an average of twelve churches vacant and in all of these I have 
served. I have been present for numerous Vestry and Congregational 
meetings and given assistance in solving their problems. 

As an ex officio member of the various departments under the 
Executive Council, I have worked closely with these departments. My 
major activity has been with the Departments of Missions and Promo- 
tion. In both areas, progress has been made. The Department of Mis- 
sions, under the able leadership of The Rev. E. F. Moseley, has reviewed 
about two-thirds of all our mission fields and in every case, with the 
cooperation of the Mission Churches, worked out stipend adjustments for 
the Clergy. There is much to be done here to reach the minimum goal 
set by this Convention but we can, at this time, report progress. 

The Department of Promotion, under Mr. Robert J. Powell, has 
sought to initiate a year-round educational effort on Stewardship. 
However, the main effort has been through the Fall Regional Vestry 
Supper Meetings. We have used constantly the material supplied by 
our National Department. Stress has been placed upon giving as God 
has blessed you, rather than giving to meet a budget. We believe the 
potential for the spread of Christ's Kingdom here in East Carolina is 
only limited by our individual Consecration to our Common Master. 

The Builders for Christ Campaign is lagging, which we all regret. 
Two-thirds complete is not a report to brag about. But the two-thirds 
accomplishments are all worthy of comment. Our full quota to The 
National Church was sent long ago. Our full commitment towards Bogue 
Banks has been met and we are still counting on the Laymen to back 
us in completing this Campaign. We have made substantial contributions 
towards St. Christoper's Church, Havelock, towards Camp Leach and 
in improving the physical facilities in the area of our Negro Work. A 
new Rectory was made possible for our Priest serving St. Paul's Church, 
Washington, and St. Augustine's Congregation, Kinston, will soon move 
into a beautiful Church, which will also provide Church School accommo- 
dations. A proportionate share of our commitment towards the Student 
Center to be built in Greenville has also been made. No finer effort 
could be made by this convention than to corporately assure the success 
of this effort this year. 

Final plans have been made for the completion of our Diocesan Sur- 
vey Study by the Unit of Research this September. Then we hope to 
launch out into new areas of endeavor and consolidate in others. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(REV.) DANIEL W. ALLEN. 



58 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Board of Publications 

THE BOARD OF PUBLICATIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

We submit the following report: — 

The publication of ten issues of the diocesan paper ably assisted 
by Mrs. Horton Rountree of Farmville who succeeded Mr. Ned Mc- 
Eachern resigned last summer after years of faithful service, 

This publication was printed in Farmville and our mailing list was 
revised and now includes some 6000 names, 

All gifts are now acknowledged by mail, 

Our aim is to be the Promotional and Evangelising medium of the 
Diocese, 

We urged all churches to send us their weekly bulletins, 

We urge more advertising to offset the rising cost of publication, 

Cost of 10 issues $3,847.02— Revenue only $2,352.80 from the 6000 
subscribers, $243.17 from advertisements, $400.00 from the Diocese, 
$50.00 from the Laymen's League, $125.40 from Auxiliary chapters, 
$14.00 from Young Churchmen's groups and $136.00 from Churches. 
Adding cost of May issue our deficit will be around $800.00. 

We urge subscription price to be increased officially by this Con- 
vention from $1.00 to $2.00 a year and/or ask for other financial assist- 
ance that we may continue to send the Mission Herald in every home 
in the Diocese. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HUME COX, Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PROMOTION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Department of Promotion during the past year again spon- 
sored a series of Regional Vestry Meetings throughout the Diocese 
during October. While to some extent the needs and the program of the 
Diocese were used as an appeal for greater giving, it was suggested that 
appeals to duty, pride, program and plans not be used. It was rather 
suggested that we ask the members of our parishes to give whatever 
percentage or proportion of our income that in the course of our per- 
sonal devotions God would tell us in our hearts to give. 

Excellent training material and plans were prepared by the Na- 
tional Department to help canvass chairmen and canvassers to make 
such an appeal. No budget was necessary; no program was presented; 
just a straight forward appeal to Give to God a definite proportion of 
our income in relation to His Blessings — then we would use what- 
ever funds for the support of our parish, Diocese and Mission work. 

I wish I could say that every parish had used this system — for those 
who did, not only noted an increase in giving by the parish — but also 
received rich experience in Christian Education and Christian Giving. 
This plan is being used by many parishes in many of our dioceses and 
reports as to its double benefits continue to come in. 

On May 21st, I will meet with the Chairman of our National De- 
partment of Promotion to receive and discuss the material and plans 
for the coming canvass. Each clergyman will shortly thereafter re- 
ceive a complete sampling of this material. I should like to ask that 
each vestry appoint its Stewardship Chairman and that plans be com- 
menced for our fall canvass. 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 59 

Report — Department of Christian Education for 1956 

I beg of you to consider eliminating the use of a budget and a 
program as a basis of our Every Member Canvass. And, may we suggest 
that we ask our members to give, not to a budget, not simply to a pro- 
gram, but to give to God a definite proportion of their income after 
their own prayerful consideration. 

Such a plan as this cannot be used by giving canvass chairmen and 
their helpers instructions and aids the day before or the week before 
the canvass day. Any canvass — a canvass to bring men and women as 
well as their wealth and talents into God's Kingdom — must be treated 
seriously as a Holy and Spiritual work — not as a business or civic propo- 
sition. We are being provided with the opportunity, the plan — we have 
the advantage of excellent materials, carefully prepared and with value 
proven in many other parishes. 

The needs of our parish and Diocese are known both to our Lord 
and ourselves. He has left it to us to provide for the needs. By faith 
and work the needs may be met — met by wealth, talent and time given 
joyfully and not of necessity. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBERT J. POWELL, JR., 
Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT 
OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION FOR 1956 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your department held two meetings in the calendar year 1956; one 
in January in Edenton and one in October in Wilmington. Two other 
meetings were called, but could not be held because of inability of mem- 
bers to attend. In conjunction with the Department of Youth, your 
department advised the creation of the position of Diocesan Director 
of Christian Education and Youth Work in 1957. This recommendation 
was passed by the Executive Council, but was rejected by the Diocesan 
Convention. This request is renewed this year, with the hope that 
ways and means of creating this position can be found by 1958. 

The program of the department included the setting up of teams 
with clergy and laymen to conduct training institutes in parishes and 
missions that desired such and offering the parishes and missions leaders 
for Parish Life Conferences. 

Through the cooperation of the National Department of Christian 
Education, seven clergy in our Diocese have now been trained at Church 
and Group Life Laboratories, who are capable of conducting such Parish 
Life Conferences, and this training program has been continued in the 
present year. Several Parish Life Conferences are scheduled at various 
places in the Diocese this month. 

Respectfully submitted, 
MORTIMER W. GLOVER, 
Chairman 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON 
DIRECTOR OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Committee appointed at the last Convention submits the fol- 
lowing report: — 



60 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Budget — 1958 

1. On the needs to be met: — 

A. Such a Director could spend time in the field training and ad- 
vising parishes and missions on the use of the new Curriculum ma- 
terial, 

B. He could also conduct training institutes on a regional basis, 

C. He could promote the new materials in many other ways particu- 
larly by exhibits at the various parishes and missions. 

2. The Duties to be performed: — 

A. In addition to above he could be the Director of the Youth Work 
for the Diocese, 

B. And also he could be the Manager of the Diocesan Camp and 
Conference center which is in reality part of Youth Work. 

3. The type of person to engage: — 

A. In line with experience we recommend the employment of a 
priest instead of a woman or layman, 

B. A priest has a better standing and in addition his ability to con- 
duct service and administer the sacraments would be of great help. 

4. The expense involved: — 

A. By combining the Conference Center Manager's position with this 
the added cost would be $7,210 allocated to Salary, housing, Pen- 
sion, Travel, Office and Educational material. $2,000.00 salary and 
also pension item is already in the budget for Conference Center 
Director. 

B. There is now in the budget for Christian Education only $4,320 
for this all important work — $7,210 does not seem to be too big an 
addition. 

Certain Resolutions to implement the above report are 
hereby made separately to the Convention, (see Reso- 
lutions page 75). 

Respectfully submitted, 

MORTIMER GLOVER. Chairman.

62 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Committee on Status of Parishes and Missions 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON 
STATUS OF PARISHES AND MISSIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

At meetings of your Committee held at St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, 
on May 1st and 2nd, 1957, we met with a number of delegations from 
Parishes and Missions and desire to make the following recommendations: 
(1) — St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea, Nags Head, N. C. is making wonder- 
ful progress and we were hopeful that they would become an Aided 
Parish but after a lengthy discussion with the Rector (Rev. Robert W. 
Turner III) and members of their Vestry, it was decided that, in view of 
Mr. Turner's having been in the Diocese only two months, it would be 
best for St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea to remain a Mission for one more year. 

(2) — St. Joseph's, Fayetteville, having failed to make any payments 
on either Diocesan apportionments or Pension Fund for 1956, we had 
several meetings with their Rector (Rev. George B. D. Dayson) and 
members of their Vestry in an attempt to get some assurance that these 
payments would be made. We were unable to get satisfactory assurance 
from them that any portion of the payments would be paid, so we took 
the matter to the Convention for their recommendation. Upon motion 
duly made and seconded, the Convention voted to give St. Joseph's, 
Fayetteville, until August 1, 1957 to pay up all 1956 apportionments 
and Pension Funds due and to pay 1957 apportionments and Pension 
Funds to date. 

(3) — Your Committee met with the Rector (Rev. George Stokes) 
and a large delegation of Vestrymen from St. Paul's, Clinton, and we 
find that they are now meeting all of the requirements and financial 
obligations of a full Parish. Also, they presented evidence of their 
financial responsibility and continual growth which, we believe, will 
enable them to function as a full Parish. 

NOW, THEREFORE, 

BE IT RESOLVED: 

That St. Paul's, Clinton be, and it hereby is, admitted to the Con- 
vention of the Diocese of East Carolina as a Church with full Parish 
Status. Resolution was adopted. 

(4) — St. Thomas', Ahoskie, N. C. is showing a remarkable growth 
and a great deal of enthusiasm. They have made application to be ad- 
mitted to the Convention with the status of an Aided Parish. 

Your Committee has met with the Rector (Rev. John C. Owens) 
and members of the Vestry and we find that they are now exceeding the 
requirements of an Aided Parish as set out in Section 52 of Canon 12. 
Also they presented evidence of financial responsibility and continuing 
growth which, we believe, will enable them to function as an Aided 
Parish. 

NOW, THEREFORE, 

BE IT RESOLVED: 

That St. Thomas', Ahoskie, N. C. be and it hereby is admitted to the 
Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina as a Church with the status 
of an Aided Parish. Resolution was adopted. 

(5) — Christ Chapel, Kinston, N. C. has officially been consolidated 
with St. Mary's Church, Kinston. 

(6) — St. Andrew's, Calabash has officially been consolidated with 
Gaus' Landing Mission. 

Respectfully submitted, 
STANLEY WOODLAND, 
Chairman.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CHANGING 
THE DATE OF THE ANNUAL CONVENTION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Committee appointed at the 73rd Convention to consider the 
advisability of holding the annual Convention in the early Fall in- 
stead of in the Spring of the year beg to report that while there are 
some advantages in holding a Convention in the Fall, the disadvantages, 
in the opinion of your Committee, outweigh the advantages and the 
Committee therefore recommends that no change be made. 

Respectfullv submitted, 

JUNIUS D. GRIMES, Chairman. 

LAYMEN'S ASSOCIATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

We report the following activities: — 

Parish Life Study Conference June 1st and 2nd, 1956 at the Alice 
Hoffman Conference and Youth Center led by the Rev. E. B. Jeffries 
and attended by 36 laymen and the Rev. Harold Harper, Chairman of 
the National Laymen's Association and Mr. Barry Crim, Field Worker 
for the Brotherhood of St. Andrew. 



70 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Laymen's Association 

Followed by the Annual Meeting at the conference center on June 
3rd with 60 laymen present after an opening service in St. Paul's, 
Beaufort. Dr. Harper, Mr. Crim and Bishop Wright also attended. Mr. 
Elmer Simkins named Secretary-Treasurer. Five District Chairmen ap- 
pointed. 

Operated the Conference Center during the summer of 1956 with 
Mr. Richard Ottaway, seminary student in charge. 2400 people visited. 
Paid Mr. Ottaway's salary of $500.00. Ran a deficit of $700.00 in op- 
erating expense over receipts. Expended $3500 for kitchen equipment, 
tables and chairs. 

Built a motel unit at the Conference Center costing $6,320.00 fi- 
nanced by $5000.00 from an anonymous giver and the remainder taken 
from our Whitsunday and Advent Thank offerings. 

The two offerings amounted to $3,169.19 and other contributions 
received were from members $869.00 and from non-members $850.00. 
On January 13th at the Annual Meeting we reported all obligations 
paid and $800.00 on hand. This is actually due to the Diocese to re- 
place $800.00 we received over and above $10,000.00 received for con- 
ference center from the Builders for Christ Fund. If its goal of $75,- 
000 is not reached we will actually owe the Diocese more. In view of 
commitments we are asked to carry, it was decided to retain this $800 
at present. Held a meeting of the Advisory Board in September with 
Bishop Wright in attendance at which many problems were discussed 
and solutions suggested. 

The Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary-Treasurer, and other lay- 
men addressed the November Clergy Conference explaining the work 
of the Association, especially the Laymen's Thank Offering boxes. 
Suggestion was made to print a booklet on the Laymen's work by the 
Rev. Henry Johnston. This has been done and favorable publicity being 
given it by Dr. Harold Harper we have received many requests for copies 
from over the United States. 

Annual meeting held on January 13th, 1957 in St. Mary's, Kinston 
with 200 laymen present. Sermon preached by the Rev. Henry Rightor 
of the Diocese of Maryland. It was decided to distribute funds as fol- 
lows: 40% to Camps and Conferences, 10% to Diocesan Episcopal Foun- 
dation, 10% to Ministerial Students, 5% to Mission Herald, 15% to 
help create new parishes and 20% for promotion of laymen's work — pro- 
vision being made that if thought advisable funds could be transferred 
from one fund to another. 

On suggestion of Mr. Elmer Simkins a Bishop's Trophy to be 
awarded annually was set up and a committee named to implement the 
idea — due notice of this has been given throughout the Diocese. 

Suggestion was made and adopted to have two meetings of lay- 
men in each District each year. Meeting has been held in St. James', 
Wilmington with 100 laymen present and meetings are scheduled for 
Elizabeth City, Lumberton and the central district. 

Meetings were held with our Advisory Board and the Camps and 
Conference Committee in January and March of 1957. As a result of 
this the Laymen agreed to build a second motel and to undertake en- 
larging the parking area and also to build a cottage at Camp Leach — 
total cost of $10,400.00. $5,200 is in sight and an additional $5,200 is 
needed. Letters went out to all keymen urging contributions but so far 
we have had no response. 

Our Conference Center will again be under Mr. Richard Ottaway 
this summer and rates will be set by the Camps and Conference Com- 
mittee. 

Sent three delegates to attend the Laymen's Study Course in Se- 
wanee. 

Partly supported a Korean student at the University of the South. 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 71 

The Woman's Auxiliary 

Assisted in organizing two Brotherhood of St. Andrew's Chapters 
and two Laymen's Association Chapters. 

Held a Diocesan meeting on April 27th, 1957 in St. John's, Fayette- 
ville of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew with Mr. Barry Crim attended 
by only 16 laymen representing 7 parishes. Organized a Diocesan As- 
sembly with headquarters in Goldsboro and elected Mr. John Roberts, 
President, Goldsboro, Mr. C. K. Smith, Kinston, Vice-President and 
Mr. Clifton Daniels, Jr., Goldsboro, Secretary-Treasurer. 

Our Whitsunday and Advent offerings showed a gain of a few 
hundred dollars. 29 parishes out of 68 participated in the Whitsunday 
and 40 out of 68 in the Advent offerings. Every parish should partici- 
pate whether there is formal organization of the men or not. All men 
can give daily in thanksgiving to the Lord in their offering boxes. 

Your Chairman met with the Woman's Auxiliary at their Annual 
meeting and solicited their earnest support of our endeavors. 

Your Chairman strongly urges that we undertake the successful 
completion of the lagging Builders for Christ Campaign. $50,000 has 
been raised of the proposed $75,000 and only 28 parishes and missions 
have paid their full quota. After three years we have only completed 
66 2/3% of our goal. If not more is raised the Laymen's Association 
will have to return to the Diocese $3,300.00 of the $10,000.00 received 
from this fund! 

10% of our 3300 laymen are willing to work and 90% are willing to 
let them do the work. Let's finish this Campaign — we are all at fault 
clergy, key laymen and laymen at large for depending upon "the other 
fellow" to raise the money. 

Our resources are being developed for all not a few and we need 
the support of every layman and every rector. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRANK SAUNDERS, Chairman. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese 
of East Carolina: — 

Greetings to this Convention from the Women of the Diocese. We 
report the following summary of our activities: — 

Our annual meeting was held in Kinston in which we heard thru 
many fine speakers of the work being done in our own Diocese, in the 
Fourth Province, in our Nation and in Foreign Lands. We also heard 
of the work being done by our own local Auxiliaries. The Rt. Rev. George 
M. Murray, Bishop Suffragan of Alabama was our preacher and our 
own Bishop Wright gave us an inspiring address. 

Two quiet days in February in Wilmington and Plymouth effective- 
ly and spiritually led by Sister Josephine of the Convent of St. Helena 
Newberg, N. Y. 

A three day retreat in June at Camp Leach led by Mrs. William 
Gordan. 

A steady increase in the devotional and worship side of our local 
Auxiliary programs. 

Our Women have given a total of $70,705.62, $12,047.34 being the 
United Thank Offering which implements the work of our Lord and 
our Church in many lands. 

Our local Auxiliaries have had an amazing diversification of accom- 
plishments — gifts have been sent to many diocesan projects and also 



72 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Camps & Conferences 

to foreign missionaries and missions as well as clothing and food — and 
fervent prayer has backed up these accomplishments. 

All is ready for our Conference at Camp Leach from June 10th 
through June 13th and this is a rare opportunity for spiritual growth, 
leadership training and study. 

We express our appreciation to the Bishop and the clergy for their 
guidance and assistance, 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. GERTRUDE ROSEVEAR, 
President. 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON THE 
ESTABLISHMENT OF A HOME FOR THE AGED 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Committee heretofore appointed by the Bishop to consider the 
advisability of establishing a home for aged persons, members of this 
Diocese, beg to report that after considering this matter from all angles, 
we are of the opinion that it is impractical to undertake the construction 
and operation of such a home at this time. The financial condition of 
this Diocese and the other demands made on it render such an under- 
taking unwise. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JUNIUS D. GRIMES, Chairman. 



REPORT OF BOARD OF MANAGERS, 
CAMPS AND CONFERENCES 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Camps and Conferences Board has been entrusted with the 
operation of both Camp Leach and the Alice Hoffman Conference Center. 
With regard to Camp Leach, one new cabin is being built to enable us 
to care for eight more boys, whereas the capacity has been limited to 
28. This has been done in spite of the fact that a previous policy had 
been adopted not to make further capital expenditures at Camp Leach 
until the report of the Diocesan Survey had been made. But the com- 
mittee felt assured that the additional revenue from having eight 
more campers at each of the camps would soon pay for itself. 

At the Alice Hoffman Conference Center another motel unit is 
being added and will be ready before the summer season. The Commit- 
tee decided to increase the rates of those using the motel units from 
$1 per person for adults to $1.50, and to charge children $.50 per night. 
Also it was decided to charge 25 cents per day for those persons using 
the bath facilities this summer. Special rates will be given to large 
groups. In explanation, it may be stated that this charge is being made 
because there is an expense in operating the Conference Center, and 
that those using it should not mind the modest charge that is asked. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. F. MOSELEY, Chairman. 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 73 

Report — Church Pension Fund 

THE CHURCH PENSION FUND REPORT 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your Chairman for the Church Pension Fund has received all data 
and information pertaining to the pension payments to retired clergy 
and survivors of clergymen and submitted the same to the Secretary 
of the Diocese. 

During 1956 the Rev. George F. Hill and the Rev. Jack R. Rountree 
were added to the list of clergy retired bringing to eight the number of 
clergy receiving grants in the Diocese of East Carolina along with 
thirteen survivors of clergy. 

The Church Pension Fund and its affiliates continues to give to the 
Church and clergy an effective answer to many problems. We recommend 
its continued use and study by clergy and vestrymen, 

Respectfully submitted, 
FRANCIS G. JOHNSON, 
Chairman.

74 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of Historian 

on February 21st, 1957. The proposed and usual fall session was not 
held due to the inability of obtaining a satisfactory date. 

The special meeting considered the setting of apportionments for 
1957 and accepted the Finance Department's recommendation of in- 
creasing every Church's Apportionment 13% to take care of the in- 
creased budget adopted by the 1956 Convention. Several other matters 
were considered. 

In regular session in February, 1957, financial affairs of the Diocese 
we r e reviewed and many departments and some special committees re- 
ported. As these are all included in reports to this 1957 Convention no 
detail report is here needed. 

At both meetings the Finance Department met with the Executive 
Council thus expediting r>roper attention to the financial responsibilities 
and obligations of the Diocese. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBERT J. SNELL, Secretary. 

REPORT OF HISTORIAN 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: —

for a history of their churches. After receipt of same I plan to deposit 
them in the Diocesan House. Wilmington, for reference.

1. Hyde County Churches. History promised. 

2. St. Paul's, Beaufort. History in May's Mission Herald.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CANONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Secretary of the Convention and Chancellor call attention to 
the fact that the proposed change in Article IV, Section 3 of the Dio- 
cesan Constitution was passed on its first reading at the 73rd annual 
Convention of the Diocese held at Elizabeth City in April 1956 and is 
now presented for action on its final reading. The proposed amendment 
reads as follows: 

"Each Church with full parish status within the Diocese shall be 
entitled to be represented by four lay delegates chosen by the Vestry 
from the communicants of the Church, and that each aided Parish shall 
be entitled to be represented by two lay delegates chosen by the Vestry 
from the communicants of the Church." 

To complete the adoption, it is necessary that the Amendment be 
approved by a majority of each of the two orders present provided a 
majority of the Lay delegates present voting by Parishes with full 
Parish status. Aided Parish and Missions vote favorably. 

This amendment was duly adopted on May 2nd, 1957 by the Con- 
vention voting by orders and is now effective as a part of the Constitu- 
tion. 

Respectfully submitted, 
WALLACE MURCHISON, 
Chairman.

1. RESOLVED, That the Department of Finance be hereby in-

cese a proposed budget of the expenses of the Diocese, which shall in- 
clude all expenses and obligations of the Diocese.

REPORT OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

I shall present to you the highlights of the Annual Report I made 
at the annual Board of Directors Meeting last January. 

Today, I have the privilege to present to you my tenth annual re- 
port. In this year's report to you, I shall give you, by way of compari- 
son, the Hospital today and the Hospital of 1946. 

In 1946, we were faced with a deficit of more than $3,000.00, unable 
to pay our monthly bills and the plant was in a deplorable condition. 
Today, this deficit has been wiped out and we are able to pay our 
monthly bills and the plant is in a much better condition than it was 
ten years ago. During the year of 1946, we treated only 1,159 patients 
for a total of 8,135 days of care — during 1956, we treated a total of 
2,000 patients for a total of 12,000 days of care. 

In 1946, our plant capital was $99,632.46. As of December 31, 1956, 
our plant capital was $177,938.17. During this time, we have been 
able to paint the exterior and the interior of the hospital and nurses' 
home on several occasions. Approximately $5,000.00 worth of asphalt 
tile has been installed in the hospital. We have bought over $30,000.00 
worth of equipment. 

Throughout the past 10 years, the Craven County Welfare and 
surrounding Welfare departments have been expanding their services in 
regards to hospitalizing the indigents. During 1946, we were only re- 
ceiving $600.00 per year from these welfare departments. During 1956, 
we received more than $17,000.00 from our welfare departments. In 
1946, the City of New Bern was making a donation of $50.00 a month to 
the hospital — today, we are now receiving a donation of $150.00 per 
month from the city. 

Since 1946, there have been other agencies to come forth and help: — 
The Kate B. Reynolds Trust, the N. C. Blind Commission, N. C. Vocation- 
al Rehabilitation Commission, N. C. Medical Care and The Ford Foun- 
dation. 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 77 

St. Mary's Jv.n'or College 

During 1946, our total income from all sources was approximately 
$36,000.00. In 1956, our total income was approximately $142,000.00. 

We had only 18 employees on our payroll in 1946, during 1956, we 
had 36 employees on our payroll. 

Since 1946, we have been fortunate to add to our staff the follow- 
ing employees — Medical Director, Anesthetist, 2 laboratory technicians, 
Radiologist and Record Librarian. 

During 1956, a blood bank was installed in the hospital — $700.00. 
We also connected our emergency lighting system during 1956 — $1,000.00. 
The entire hospital was treated for termites — $1,280.00. 

The Woman's Auxiliary, both in and out of the Diocese was very 
generous to us during the year. Several hundred dollars were realized 
through this source, as well as many hospital supplies. 

Our big project for 1957 will be the building of a new wing, which 
will house the kitchen and dining rooms — also, the remodeling of the 
Delivery Room. This pioject is being made possible by the grant from 
the Ford Foundation and the Duke Endowment. 

In conclusion, may I say that the year of 1956, was our banner year 
financially and medically. We took in more money and treated more 
patients than ever before. 

Respectfully submitted, 
O. T. FAISON, 

Business Administrator. 



ST. MARY'S JUNIOR COLLEGE 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Since the meeting of this convention last year two buildings have 
been completed and many other physical changes have been made. En- 
rollment for the year was again at capacity. Increases in enrollment 
will be possible in the fall of 1957 as a result of the completion of our 
new dormitory. Applications have far surpassed those of a year ago 
and we are assured of a full enrollment. 

On May 4th in an impressive ceremony, Penick Hall, our new dor- 
mitory, was dedicated. Your president proposed this venture in his re- 
port to the Board of Trustees in 1954. As a result of the discussion that 
ensued a loan was secured from the Home and Housing Finance Agency 
of the Federal Government. The loan was for $200,000 at 2%% and is 
financed for a term of forty years. The dormitory was completed in 
February of this year. The formal dedication and laying of the corner 
stone took place on May 4, 1957. The Board of Trustees by a unanimous 
vote named it in honor of Bishop Penick. Bishop Penick has served as 
President of the Board of Trustees since 1927 and has been active in its 
interests since he first came to the diocese. The naming of the building 
in his honor was a fitting tribute. 

During the summer of 1956 a new laundry-warehouse building was 
also completed. This attractive brick building was erected out of funds 
that had been accumulated over a period of several years. Another 
addition to student comfort was acquired this year. Through the good 
efforts of two members of the Board, Mr. Haywood Duke and Mr. Ar- 
thur Tyler, funds were raised to replace the chairs in the auditorium. 
The new comfortable chairs are greatly appreciated by everyone. 

The children of Mrs. Lawrence Holt, under the general leadership 
of Mrs. Walter Brooks, one of Mrs. Holt's daughters, gave St. Mary's 
an excellent gift this year. They completely refurnished and refinished 
the two parlors in Holt Dormitory which was named for their mother.

Thomas Orphanage 

The rooms were repapered, new floor covering secured and new furni- 
ture was placed in the rooms. All the work was in excellent taste and 
done by a very competent decorator. 

Two of the scholarship funds were increased this year. Mr. and 
Mrs. T. C. Heyward continued their contributions to the scholarship 
named in honor of Mrs. Heyward and Mr. Ashby Baker and Mr. Julian 
Baker further strengthened the fund named as a memorial to their 
mother. In addition to the above the Alumnae Association is attempting 
to raise $10,000 to establish a scholarship in memory of Mrs. Ernest 
Cruikshank our former president. They hope to have this fund complet- 
ed by Commencement Day. Contributions totaling well over $7,000 have 
been received to date. 

With the addition of Penick Hall, thirty-five more students will be 
admitted next September. These additions will be in the college depart- 
ment and will bring the dormitory enrollment to approximately 300. 
There will be expansions in the faculty to take care of the expanded 
teaching schedule. 

This year we lose by retirement two faculty members who have 
rendered long and valuable service, the Rev. I. Harding Hughes, chap- 
lain, and Miss Florence C. Davis, dramatics instructor. Both of these 
people will be recognized for their contributions at the next commence- 



ment. 



Respectfully submitted, 

RICHARD P. STONE, President 
St. Mary's Junior College. 



THOMAS ORPHANAGE 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fourth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

On August 15, 1956 the forty back acres of our property located at 
1130 East Fourth Street was leased for ninety-nine years to the Rouse 
Company of Baltimore, Maryland to be developed as a shopping center. 
In general the terms of the lease are as follows: The first year the lease 
pays $10,000; the second year the lease pays $25,000; the third year 
the lease reaches the minimum rent of $50,000 per year. There is an 
escalade clause in this lease which provides that if economic conditions 
grant it the lease can be increased but can never fall below the minimum 
of $50,000 per year. 

This money is being held in a Building Fund. We know that it will 
cost more than a million dollars to rebuild the orphanage on a new site. 
We intend to borrow the money using this lease as security. You do 
not have to be much of a mathematician to know that the interest rate 
of such a loan will just about use the $50,000 each year. Therefore, for 
current expenses we get no help from the lease and your responsibility 
as a contributor to the support of the Thompson Orphanage will con- 
tinue as is as the years go by. 

In 1956 our population was divided as follows: 15 full orphans; 57 
half orphans; and 11 children with both parents living. A total of 83 
divided as follows: 39 boys; 44 girls. These children come from all over 
the state of North Carolina. Their admission was based on need. Very 
few of you ever see a child when he is first admitted to the Thompson 
Orphanage. Lots of you see them after they have been at the orphanage 
for some time. There is quite a contrast. The difference in the way 
these children look is due to the care and training that they receive here 
at the Thompson Orphanage. Your contributions make this training 
possible. 



SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 79 

Thomas Orphanage 

We have our daily chores such as cleaning our house, working in the 
dining room and kitchen, working in the laundry, and the many things 
that are to do on the farm. 

We do not receive children who are eligible for adoption, therefore, 
we never have a child for adoption. 

We attend the city public schools. Our record for the past school 
year is as follows: 13 "A's"; 11 "B's"; 9 "C's". 

Through the interest of some of our friends and the Woman's Auxil- 
iary of the Diocese of North Carolina who have established a scholar- 
ship fund I have been able to take care of the education after high 
school for those who have wanted and needed more schooling. Last 
year we had one boy to graduate from State College, we have one boy 
at the University of North Carolina, we have one girl at Richmond Pro- 
fessional Institute and two girls in business school. This, of course, is 
helpful in that there is now a way to take care of our boys and girls 
who want and need more education. 

I am sure you want to hear something about our farming activities. 
In 1956 the growing season was not as good in this locality as in 1955. 
We had quite a dry summer. However, the gross return from our farm 
was $25,502.59. Of this amount we sold $7,775.71 worth of milk and eggs. 
We like our farming activity not only for the fine food that it provides 
for us but for the recreational value in that at the farm we have a lake 
in which we can swim, lots of elbow room so we can always play with- 
out the fear of being run over by an automobile or of throwing a base- 
ball through a window. 

Our boys and girls were quite successful in their 4-H Club work 
winning numerous blue ribbons for their projects and also the grand 
prize winner in the junior sewing division and the special merit ribbon 
in the dairy cattle show. We also had five members who attended the 
4-H achievement piogram which recognized that they were the winners 
in their respective groups for the whole county. 

Mr. Wheeler, our Chaplain, performed three weddings in our Chapel 
of St. Mary the Virgin for our boys and girls who called Thompson Or- 
phanage their home. One of these couples were both former members 
of our family. 

In order for this work to continue I urge your continued support. 
Results of our 1956 Thanksgiving Offering to date is as follows: 

Diocese of East Carolina $ 6,109.30 

Diocese of North Carolina 24,439.21 

Diocese of Western North Carolina 2,412.11 

TOTAL $32,960.62 

I want to conclude my report by thanking each of you who has 
contributed to the Thompson Orphanage and I hope that you will con- 
tinue to keep us in your heart and mind as we need your continued 
support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

M. D. WHISNANT, 

Superintendent.

The Rev. R. J. Snell was re-elected Secretary upon the

The Bishop announced the appointment of the Nominating 
Committee: Mr. John Graham, Chairman, the Rev. Edward 
T. Small, and Mr. George F. Hunt, Jr. 

Mr. Junius D. Grimes, Sr., was re-elected Chancellor of the 
Diocese upon the nomination of the Bishop, (see page 43) . 

A telegram of greetings and best wishes was read from 
the Diocese of North Carolina assembled in Convention in St. 
Michael's Church, Raleigh. A telegram was dispatched to them 
assuring them of our best wishes and congratulating the Rt.

The Convention adjourned at 1 P.M. for luncheon. 

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON 

The Convention reconvened at 2 P.M. 

Mr. W. G. Gaither, Chairman of the Department of Finance, 
gave his report. 

Mr. Peter B. Ruff in, member of the Department of Finance, 
distributed the budget for 1959 to all delegates and explained 
the proposed increases. 

Mr. John Graham moved to amend this budget by including 
an item of $2,300.00 to cover the cost of Health and Accident 
Insurance on the clergy of the Diocese. 

Mr. Junius B. Grimes, Sr., ruled as Chancellor this addition 
could be accepted by the Department of Finance if they so 
desired without a vote of the Convention. Mr. Gaither speak- 
ing for the Department agreed to accept this addition. 

The Bishop spoke to this budget and declared that he hoped 
no delegation had come to the Convention instructed to vote 
against it or any item in it as this was against the democratic 
procedure of the Convention and the working of the Holy 
Spirit. 

Mr. Robert J. Powell, Jr., President of the Laymen's Asso- 
ciation of the Diocese and Chairman of the Department of 
Promotion spoke strongly in favor of this budget. He cited 
our loss of Communicant strength and our need of professional 
leadership in the developing program of Christian Education. 

After several questions had been asked about the budget 
it was moved and carried to accept the 1959 budget as amend- 
ed in the amount of $156,299.95. (see page 59) . 

The Rev. W. T. Waterhouse, chairman of the Department 
of Christian Education, presented his report, (see page 58). 

Mr. Robert J. Powell, Jr., chairman, presented the report 
of the Department of Promotion and introduced Mr. L. W. 
Allen who had so ably supervised the television program in 
1957 on the work of the Diocese and National Church as 
presented on stations in Greenville and Wilmington. This 
program is to be produced again in the fall of 1958. (see page 
57). 

Mr. Stanley Woodland, chairman, presented the report of 
the Committee on the Status of Parishes and Missions and 
stated (1) Grace Church, Plymouth, expected to obtain Parish 
Status by 1960 (2) moved that St. Thomas', Windsor, and St. 
Thomas', Ahoskie, be admitted as full parishes with the un- 
derstanding that Windsor would sponsor their three missions 
for a year's time. The motion carried, (see page 61).

SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 25 

Bishop's Address 

BISHOP'S ADDRESS 

Brethren of the Clergy and Laity : 

"Grace be unto you and Peace from God our Father and 
the Lord Jesus Christ." 

I welcome you today to the Seventy-Fifth Annual Con- 
vention of the Diocese of East Carolina and the 13th over 
which I have had the privilege of presiding. 

We are meeting today in historic St. Stephen's Church, 
Goldsboro, North Carolina. This Church has had an unusual 
and a remarkable background. Early in the 19th Century in 
the old town of Waynesboro, on the Neuse River, a group of 
people met and organized a Community Church. Leaders in 
the movement were two daughters of Richard Washington. 
They secured the services of the Rev. N. Collin Hughes, who 
was an Episcopal Minister in the Eastern part of the State. 
Later, in 1848, when Goldsboro became the County seat, in- 
habitants of the town moved to the site that we are now on, 
the town of Goldsboro, taking their Church building with 
them. 

It was not long before the increasing number of Episcopal- 
ians called for a larger Church and a Minister who could serve 
only their Church. In 1854, therefore, they extended a call 
to the Rev. A. F. W. Rolfe and the Vestry, which had been 
recently organized, undertook the task of raising money for a 
larger and a more suitable Church building. The Rev. Mr. 
Rolfe was soon succeeded by the„Rev. Frederick Fitzgerald, 
who carried on the task of raising funds for the building of the 
Church. A leading spirit with the Rector in this whole move- 
ment was Mr. George Collier, of blessed memory. Through the 
difficult and sacrificial efforts of the Rev. Mr. Fitzgerald, Mr. 
Collier, and others, the beautiful 15th Century English Gothic 
Church that we know of today as St. Stephen's was finished 
in May of 1857. 

Soon after the Church was completed came the War Be- 
tween the States. The Church succeeded in existing through 
all of the hard years of the War and history tells us particu- 
larly of a visit from a group of Union Officers under General 
Schofield, who presented an offering to the Rector, upon 
finding the Congregation impoverished from the ravages of 
War. 

After the War, the Parish grew under the leadership of a 
number of able Rectors. These men will always be remembered, 
not only for their services in Goldsboro but for the fine con- 
tribution they made throughout the Diocese. The longest 
Rectorship was that of the Rev. William O. Cone, who served 



DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Address 



from 1920 to 1932, when illness forced him to resign. The 
Rev. Mr. Cone was succeeded by the Rev. George S. Gresham. 
The Rev. Mr. Gresham was succeeded by the Rev. John C. 
Grainger, who went into the Ministry from St. James' Church, 
Wilmington, and who is well known to many members of this 
Convention. The Rev. Mr. Grainger was succeeded by the 
Rev. George C. Stierwald, during whose tenure the new Rec- 
tory was built. 

In 1955 the Rev. Charles I. Penick became the Rector of 
St. Stephen's. He soon undertook the building of an adequate 
and needed Parish House, which had long been in the hopes 
and dreams of the Congregation. The building of this Parish 
House represents an interesting chapter in the life of St. 
Stephen's. Seldom has a Church of this size united so com- 
pletely upon a project so large and accomplished it so quickly 
and successfully. A contract for the construction of the 
Parish House was entered into in August of 1956, for a cost 
of $161,438, and the building was completed in June of 1957. 
Thus, the Parish House was entirely completed within 19 
months after the campaign for funds had begun. The unity 
of the Congregation in this work and the wonderful har- 
mony and efficiency with which it was carried out testifies 
eloquently to the leadership of the present Rector, the Rev. 
Mr. Penick. Seldom has any Church had a more devoted, re- 
spected and admired Pastor, Priest and Preacher. The whole 
Diocese rejoices in his leadership in St. Stephen's and it is with 
great happiness that we meet with him and his people in this, 
our 75th Convention. 

NEW CLERGY IN THE DIOCESE 

Since the last meeting of our Convention, nine new men 
have been added to our Clergy Diocesan family. The Rev. 
Heath Light, formerly of the Diocese of Southern Virginia, is 
now Rector of Christ Church, Elizabeth City. The Rev. L. 
Stanley Jeffery, formerly of the Diocese of Southwestern Vir- 
ginia, is now Rector of St. Andrew's Church, Wrightsville 
Sound. The Rev. Lemuel Roberson, formerly of the Diocese 
of North Carolina, is now Rector of St. Paul's Church, Clin- 
ton. The Rev. Herbert C. Gravely, who graduated in June 
from the Virginia Theological Seminary, is now Priest-in- 
Charge of St. John's Church, Grifton, St. Mark's Church, 
Grif ton, and St. James' Church, Ayden. The Rev. Clyde Beatty, 
who graduated in June from the Virginia Theological Semi- 
nary, is now in charge of St. John Evangelist, Edenton, 
St. Philip's Church, Elizabeth City, St. Ann's Church, Roper, 
St. Thomas Church, Sladesville, and St. Mary's Church, Bel- 
haven. The Rev. Richard N. Ottaway, who graduated from 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 27 



Bishop's Address 



the Virginia Seminary in June, is now in charge of St. Paul's 
Church, Vanceboro, and Trinity Church, Chocowinity. Cap- 
tain Henry Howard of The Church Army is now serving tem- 
porarily our work in St. Philip's Church, Southport, and the 
missions around Wilmington. Captain Bruce Ackles of The 
Church Army is likewise serving temporarily our work in 
Holy Innocents', Lenoir County, and Grace Church, Trenton. 
Effective September 1st, the Rev. John J. Ormond, now serv- 
ing in the Diocese of Louisiana, has accepted the Rectorship of 
the Church of the Advent, Williamston, and we will welcome 
him back into the Diocese again. 

Within the next few months, two additional Clergymen 
will be added to our Diocesan life. The Rev. Raby Edwards, 
who will graduate from the Virginia Seminary, will become 
Deacon-in-Charge of St. Christopher's, Havelock. The Rev. 
John Broome, who will graduate from the Virginia Seminary, 
will become Deacon-in-Charge of St. James' Church, Belhaven, 
and St. Matthew's, Yeatesville. 

We most heartily welcome these eleven additions to our 
East Carolina fellowship of Clergy and later in this meeting I 
shall introduce those who are present to this Convention. 

During the past year, nine Clergymen have left the Dio- 
cese and are now serving in other Dioceses. The Rev. George 
B. D. Dayson has transferred to the Diocese of Southern Vir- 
ginia. The Rev. Thomas L. Hastings has transferred to the 
Diocese of Georgia. The Rev. L. W. Hewett has transferred to 
the Diocese of Massachusetts. The Rev. A. Webster Horstman 
has transferred to the Diocese of Arkansas. The Rev. Richard 
P. Layman has again entered the services of the Armed Forces. 
The Rev. Paul E. Shultz has transferred to the Diocese of South 
Florida. The Rev. Edward M. Spruill has transferred to the 
Diocese of Upper South Carolina. The Rev. George Stokes has 
transferred to the Diocese of Ohio. The Rev. Charles F. Wulf 
has transferred to the Diocese of Tennessee. May God bless 
all of these Clergymen as they continue to do His work in other 
areas of usefulness. 

CHURCH CONSTRUCTION IN THE DIOCESE 

Perhaps the significant achievement of the past year has 
been the amount of Church construction that has taken place, 
or is in progress at the present time throughout the Diocese. 

At the present time six new Churches are being built, or 
plans are being drawn for them by architects. All of these 
will replace Churches that have outgrown their usefulness 
or where the population has shifted and new construction is 
needed. Plans are under way, or construction has begun on 
nine Parish Houses throughout the Diocese, reflecting a de- 



28 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

sire on the part of our Church people to meet the challenge 
of better Christian Education. At the present time, there are 
eight major renovation jobs under way for improving Church 
properties. These stem all the way from interior repairs and 
new furniture to the purchase of new organs, painting, and 
general rehabilitation. 

Throughout the Diocese at the present time one sees new 
construction taking place. The report, therefore, in this area 
is one of the significant characteristics and achievements of 
this year. There is not a section of the Diocese that is not 
now undergoing new improvement and new renovation — our 
Churches, Parish Houses, and Rectories are being made more 
adequate and useful to promote the work of the Church and 
to care for the Evangelistic message of our Lord and Master, 
Jesus Christ. The Churches of the Diocese should be proud of 
the material construction now taking place. The Diocese has 
long waited for this time because our facilities have been most 
inadequate in many places. We of this Convention rejoice, 
therefore, with those Churches that have moved out and into 
new construction programs and we feel sure that, in the long 
run, this will make for a better and a stronger Church in 
East Carolina. 

THE DIOCESAN SURVEY 

In connection with improvements that are being made in 
the Diocese, the total Diocesan Survey completed last year 
is coming more and more into the picture. Such a Diocesan 
Survey is supposed to provide the Diocese with a kind of 
"Blueprint" for the next 20 years to come. Many projects 
and suggestions of the Survey have already been put into 
effect. Others are in the process of being made useful. In 
accord with the recommendations of the Survey, an Overall 
Planning Council for the Episcopal Churches of Fayetteville 
has been organized, with Mr. E. O. Rehm as Chairman. A 
similar Planning Council has been organized in Wilmington, 
with Mr. Walker Taylor as Chairman. Throughout the Dio- 
cese, in many areas, one sees good effects of the Survey. I 
feel that where the Survey was taken seriously by a Church 
that it has proved to be of inestimable value to that Church 
in enabling the Church to evaluate itself, to look backward at 
what had been accomplished by the Parish in the past ten 
years, and to look forward, as I said, with a kind of blueprint 
for the next ten to 20 years in the future. 

THE DEPARTMENT OF PROMOTION 

A Department of the Executive Council that I feel de- 
serves particular commendation by this Convention is the 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 29 

Bishop's Address 

Department of Promotion, under the able leadership of the 
past year of Mr. Robert J. Powell of Holy Trinity Church, 
Fayetteville. Many new and constructive promotion methods 
have been developed by this Department during the past year. 
For example, a highly successful television show put on last 
November in connection with our Every Member Canvass. 
This television performance, prepared and directed by Mr. L. W. 
Allen of Fayetteville, won national acclaim and our Diocese 
is now thought of as "the first Diocese in the Church" to use 
television in this manner successfully. It is my feeling that 
we can go much further in coordinating and developing our 
promotion methods. For example, the Mission Herald can be 
brought more fully into the objectives of the Department of 
Promotion and can be used more successfully in promoting both 
the material and the spiritual objectives of our work. I would 
like to commend a study of this whole area of the relationship 
of the Mission Herald to the Department of Promotion and 
suggest that close coordination be effected between our Pro- 
motion Department and the Board of our Diocesan publication. 

DIOCESAN DIRECTOR OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
AND YOUTH WORK 

In this Diocesan Convention Address I would like to say 
again what I said on this subject in each of my last two Con- 
vention Addresses. I speak again particularly for the Clergy 
of our Diocese when I say that most of them feel intensely 
the need for a "Diocesan Director of Christian Education and 
Youth Work." For the past eight years a new movement in 
Christian Education has been slowly winning and deepening 
the lives of our people. For the Clergy, the Churches, and the 
Diocese to take full advantage of this, it is almost a necessity 
to employ someone trained in the new Curriculum of the 
Church. It is my earnest hope that this Convention will see 
fit to make possible the employment of such a person, on a 
full-time basis, in the Diocese. I commend this most heartily 
to your attention at this Convention and trust that our bud- 
get will include the funds to take care of a full-time Diocesan 
Director of Christian Education and Youth Work. 

WORK WITH OUR ARMED FORCES 

As some of you know, I have just returned a few days 
ago from a trip for the Air Force of our country, visiting the 
Air Force and Army Bases located within the Arctic Circle. 
This trip had been carefully planned for about the past six 
months and was, indeed, an unusual experience for me. There 
are several observations that I would make from this trip. 
First of all, the high morale and stamina of the literally 



30 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Address 



thousands of young - men whom I visited and spoke to. These 
almost hand-picked young men of the Air Force and Army, 
guarding the frontier of our country in the North (the saying 
all over the world today is the same — whoever controls the 
Arctic controls the world) feel that they have a high mission 
in life at the present moment. They feel that they must keep 
themselves constantly prepared and trained (very much as a 
football team) because any moment they sense that "the hour 
may come." They are constantly on the alert. They do not want 
war to come. They hope and pray that it will not come. I 
talked to many of our top leaders. These men are all keen, 
highly intelligent university graduates, with many years of 
preparation behind them and have a real insight into world 
affairs. I found these leaders to be men of the highest type 
and caliber and I developed a tremendous respect for them. 
One of them (a full Colonel in the Air Force) had been raised 
as a missionary's son in Korea. He had never left Korea until 
he was 16 years old. He had a great love for his Church and 
a great passion for a better world. He discussed constantly 
with me his father's views about God and His world. Almost 
all of them whom I talked to believe that they are doing one 
thing today — namely, holding the line for the free world — 
the world that at least nominally lives by the Truth that comes 
from God — until internal conditions in Russia have changed. 
They believe firmly that conditions will change within Rus- 
sia. Many of them believe that they can see them changing 
now. And many of them believe this largely on the basis of 
religion. I found these young men to be some of the most 
religious men that I have ever met. 

The second observation that I would make is the tremend- 
ous need of these young men for the Church. They have a great 
eagerness for the Church. Every announcement of my Church 
services was met with an enthusiasm that I have seldom seen 
before in my Ministry. The last day that I was in Thule I 
announced a Communion Service for seven o'clock the next 
morning. The interest in this was immediately seen. Ques- 
tions were brought to me all day — who could come to the 
Service ? Could so and so come and bring a friend who needed 
the service? There were many evangelists there. There 
were many who were trying to be "his brother's keeper." 
The night before this last Communion Service a group of men 
came and asked me to go with them to the Chapel. They 
wanted to practise the Service that we would use and they 
wanted to make it the most beautiful and meaningful that 
they had ever had. We practised hymns and the service until 
after midnight and the next morning was truly a rewarding 
experience. The need of these young men for the Church is, 
indeed, a great need. 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 31 

Bishop's Address 

One finds this at home also in our military installations, 
where these young men are preparing to go out to defend our 
frontiers. Our Clergy who are working with our Military at 
the present time in East Carolina will tell you somewhat the 
same story. Perhaps our greatest missionary opportunity in 
East Carolina is with our Armed Forces installations. Al- 
though I have been unable to find out definitely, I believe that 
we have in East Carolina the largest number of Armed Forces 
installations of any Diocese in the whole Church. These nine 
Army, Marine and Navy Bases constitute an unparalleled op- 
portunity and responsibility for our Diocese. In St. Anne's 
Church, Jacksonville, near Camp Lejeune, under the able lead- 
ership of the Rev. Alexander Livesay, a $100,000 Church is 
now in the process of final planning and almost ready for 
construction. At St. Christopher's Church, Havelock, near the 
Cherry Point Marine Base, new construction is being planned to 
care for the ever increasing Sunday School and Parish activi- 
ties. All over the Diocese, wherever these bases are located, we 
are trying to meet the needs of these young men who are away 
from home at the present time and who need their Church, 
perhaps as never before. Let me pay a tribute at this time 
to the Armed Forces Division of our National Council. In 
every case where it has been requested, we have had wonder- 
ful cooperation from the Armed Forces Division of our Gen- 
eral Church, under the able leadership of the Rev. Robert J. 
Plumb, D.D., the Executive Director of this Division. A good 
proportion of the funds that we give to the General Church 
as our quota comes back to us in East Carolina to be used 
for work with our Armed Forces. 

INCREASES IN THE DIOCESAN BUDGET 

It is not often that I devote a section of my Diocesan Ad- 
dress to the Convention budget but I feel constrained to do 
so this year. I feel that in many ways this is a critical Con- 
vention for the Diocese, certainly the most critical since 
I have been Bishop for the past 13 years. What we do in this 
Convention can stand for a tremendous growth in our mis- 
sionary vision and outlook, or it can start the Diocese on a 
downward trend. I call for your most earnest attention, there- 
fore, to what I now have to say in this Convention Address. 

The purpose of the Church is clearly one thing — as the 
Gospel and the Epistle in the Communion Service this morn- 
ing clearly indicated — to witness for Jesus Christ. Where the 
National Church, the Diocese, or the Church on the local level 
fails to witness for Christ adequately, it fails indeed; where 
it witnesses adequately, it succeeds indeed. 

Now to Witness for Christ, we cannot do so in a vacuum. 



32 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

To Witness adequately for Him we must do the work that He 
would do if He were still in the world — teaching, healing, and 
preaching — above all, winning men to His way of life, both 
at home and abroad. 

Items in a Christian Church budget always stand for these 
things. They do not stand solely for money but for what the 
money represents. They represent people working in the mis- 
sion field. They represent Priests working with the men in 
our Armed Forces. Some items represent doctors and nurses 
working in St. Luke's Hospital in Manilla and in St. John's 
Hospital in Tokyo. When we see the dollar item in the budget, 
let us see it in terms of people and not in terms of dollars and 
cents. 

Now, our National Church tells us that we are not doing 
an adequate job either at home or abroad today in the name 
of Jesus Christ. The men composing, our National Council are 
a good cross-section of the Church — elected by us at General 
Convention through a completely democratic process. Our own 
representatives, therefore, (who themselves have to contribute 
as well as we do) say that our missionary giving should be 
greatly increased this coming, year. They prove it and justify 
it by figures, facts and statistics. I believe that they know 
what they are talking about. 

In accord with this, therefore, our quota for the General 
Church has been considerably increased. This increase repre- 
sents a large part of the increase in our Diocesan budget for 
1959. To me, it would be unthinkable for East Carolina to de- 
fault on this. This is the first appreciable increase asked by 
the General Church in three years. Think back over how every- 
thing has increased these past three years. To me, this in- 
crease seems reasonable and in keeping with the economic 
trend of life today. I hope earnestly, therefore, that this item 
in the budget will remain there as suggested by the Finance 
Department. 

Another increase in the budget is for the purpose of in- 
creasing the salaries of our own Diocesan missionaries. These 
have not been raised in this manner for the past three years. 
I strongly recommend this increase. 

The third major increase in the budget is for the employ- 
ment of a full-time Director of Christian Education and Youth 
Work and has already been covered in this Convention Ad- 
dress. I earnestly hope that this item will not be removed 
from the budget this year and that such a person may be 
employed. 

It is my feeling that the Department of Finance has given 
great consideration to this budget and that they feel this to be 
the actual requirements needed for the coming year. I hope 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 33 

Bishop's Address 

that this budget, therefore, will not be cut by this Convention 
to a lower figure. 



MISSIONARY GIVING 

I am constrained to say something at this time about Mis- 
sionary Giving in general. I am greatly disturbed about the 
loss of this spirit in some areas of our Diocese and also in 
some parts of our Church at large. When we lose this spirit, 
we lose the heart and soul of Jesus' message. When the 
Church stops being missionary and thinks only of itself, the 
Church begins to die. To keep alive in the sight of God the 
Church must be out-going always. He who loses his life shall 
find it and he who keeps what he has to himself shall most 
assuredly lose it. 

Now the Churches in East Carolina are raising and spend- 
ing far more money (exceedingly far more) on themselves than 
ever before in the history of the Diocese. In 1957 the paro- 
chial reports show that our Parishes and Missions raised and 
spent on themselves, roughly, $668,000. During that same 
year, these same churches gave to others — for work outside 
of themselves — for all missionary and Diocesan work of every 
kind — the sum of roughly $102,000. The ratio here is six to 
one. In other words, last year the Churches of our Diocese 
spent $6.00 on themselves for every $1.00 that they gave to 
the missionary cause of Christ in any manner. Six to one. This 
is not a happy picture for the cause of Jesus Christ. More- 
over, the parochial reports show that our Churches closed the 
year 1957 with balances in the bank (undoubtedly intended 
to be used on themselves) of roughly $235,000. 

In summary, therefore, my brethren, the picture in East 
Carolina has not been a picture of Recession (as some might 
have us believe) but a picture of Plenty in our Churches (far 
more than East Carolina has ever had before). And yet a 
picture of our Churches keeping this excess for themselves. — 
$6.00 to $1.00. 

Now I think, my dear friends, that this brings me to the 
crux of my Convention Address today. What I have been 
talking about represents not just dollars and cents but it rep- 
resents a spiritual sickness in this beloved Diocese of ours. 
No Church can spend $6.00 on themselves for every $1.00 that 
they give for the advancement of Christ's Kingdom, and think 
of themselves as being truly Christian in the light of the 
teaching of Jesus Christ. I call for a re-thinking of this whole 
question of stewardship on the part of our Clergy and people. 



34 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address 

EVANGELISM IN THE DIOCESE 

Finally, I hate to close this Convention Address with what 
may seem to be a depressing note. And yet I must be realistic 
and honest. And I must give an accounting of the past year 
both for the Diocese and for myself. For some years past, 
the Confirmations in the Diocese each year have exceeded 
the previous year. This has seemed to me to be a wonderful 
sign of spiritual growth and Evangelism. I have been proud 
of this. I cannot report that this year. The Confirmations for 
1957 fell below the figure for the previous year. Moreover, al- 
though we showed an increase in Communicants through Con- 
firmations of 5%, we showed a net loss in Communicants of 
almost 1%, due to deaths, transfers, etc. As I have said many 
times in this Convention, unless a Church Confirms 8% of its 
Communicant strength each year, with half of those Confirm- 
ed being adults, the Church is not showing a normal growth. 
Let me urge all of us to again have this on our hearts and minds 
for the coming year, and let me plead with Rectors and Ves- 
tries present today to think seriously of this matter, in terms 
of Evangelism and the need of our Church to win more adults 
in our communities, through Confirmation. 

The word Evangelism is an old one and perhaps needs con- 
stant new interpretation. But how we need more Evangelism 
in this, our beloved Diocese. How we need more of an earnest 
desire on the part of our Communicants to bring more people 
into our Churches and to win more souls for Jesus Christ. 

Now, how to go about this. Many methods have been pro- 
posed. Among these methods, let me suggest one for all of 
us to work on together. Let me suggest a five-day Evangelis- 
tic Mission to be held in every Church in the Diocese some- 
time during the months of this coming November, December 
or January. I suggest that the missioners be one of our own 
Diocesan Clergy, in every case. Let us help each other with 
this question of Evangelism. By each Clergyman going, to 
some other Church to conduct a Mission, the Diocese could 
easily be covered entirely. Let me suggest that the week's 
Mission in every Church consist not entirely of preaching 
services but also times for questions and answers. — a teach- 
ing method of our Lord Himself. Above all, let us pray for 
each other — that God may bring a new awakening to some 
of our Churches — that many may hear the Call of Christ in 
these times and rise up to do His will. 

"Rise Up, Men of God 
Have done with lesser things. 
Give heart and mind and soul and strength 
To serve the King of Kings."

REPORT OF CHANCELLOR 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of

The Chancellor begs to report that he has attended to the best of

largely of a routine nature. No matter has arisen of such nature as to 
make it necessary to call it to the attention of the convention.

Gentlemen: 

Pursuant to a request by your Treasurer, Mr. Robert Strange, we 
have examined the books of the Trustees, Diocese of East Carolina, for 
the year ended December 31, 1957, and submit herewith the results of such 
examination of the following exhibits and schedules: 
Recapitulation of Fund Balances, Income 

and Disbursements — Principal Exhibit "A" 

Recapitulation of Fund Balances, Income 

and Disbursements — Income Exhibit "B" 

Recapitulation of Changes in 

Principal Fund Balances Schedule #1 

Invested Funds Schedule #2 

Bank Reconciliation Schedule #3 

Schedule No. 1 and No. 3 are not printed in the Journal. 

COMMENTS — GENERAL 

Our examination embraced tracing receipts, as shown by the books, 
to the depository. All disbursements were made from the depository, The 
Wilmington Savings and Trust Company, Wilmington, North Carolina, 
supported by cancelled vouchers. Test checks were made of income re- 
ceived from investments and collections on notes; other income is shown 
as reflected by the books. Disbursements were accepted as correct and 
were not verified. Funds on deposit were reconciled with the records of 
the depository as of December 31, 1957. Stocks and bonds, held for safe- 
keeping in a safe deposit box at The Bank of Wilmington, Wilmington, 
North Carolina, were inspected by us on May 2, 1958. Other assets are 
shown as reflected by the books and subject to comments of previous 
reports. 

During the year under review $500.00 was collected and set up on 
the books of the Treasurer as a principal fund of a J. M. Spruill ac- 
count. The examiner was informed that the collections resulted from the 
sale of property at Lake Phelps, North Carolina, which has been car- 



52 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Trustees Treasurer's Report 

ried as part of The Rev. Edward M. Forbes Estate. The collections have 
been credited to The Rev. Edward M. Forbes Principal Account and the 
value of the real estate as carried in this account has been reduced by 
$500.00. The examiner was informed that the sale had not been com- 
pleted so consequently the transaction could not be reflected in this 
report. 

The exhibits and schedules, as presented, setting forth the financial 
condition of the Trustees, Diocese of East Carolina are subject to the 
foregoing comments. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. B. McCABE AND COMPANY,

SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 57 

Report — Board of Publications 

THE BOARD OF PUBLICATIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

During the past year it has been the policy of the Mission Herald 
Staff to publish a diocesan paper that will be the promotion medium 
for our Bishop and for all Diocesan Departments and activities, as we 
believe that the primary task of the Mission Herald is to promote all 
the work of our Diocese. 

The Department of Youth last year stopped using the Mission Her- 
ald, as they published their own paper. We commend the Department 
of Youth for this; however we would like for them to again use the 
Mission Herald, as we not only want to promote the work of all depart- 
ments of our Diocese, but we further believe that those who read the 
Mission Herald are interested in the world of our Youth Department. 

I wish to thank you for the increase in the Budget for 1959 that you 
have given the Mission Herald. With this increase if the subscribers 
still contribute to the support of the Mission Herald as well as they 
are now doing, we should not have any financial problems after 1958. 
However, this year we are in need of funds and shall be in need of money 
for the rest of this year. At present we are $497 in debt. I therefore, 
would like to urge all those who have not contributed to the support of 
the Mission Herald for 1958 to please do so, and to urge all those 
churches who have not made a contribution this year to the Mission 
Herald to do so. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HUME COX, Chairman, 
Board of Publications. 

REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PROMOTION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Department of Promotion which included the Reverend John 
Drake, the Reverend Charles Penick, Mr. L. W. Allen with the Reverend 
Dan Allen as advisor, began its operations for the past year with a 
meeting of all Stewardship Chairmen and clergy at Camp Leach in May. 
Here, our plans for the Diocesan television program was announced and 
plans for a canvass Sunday discussed. Again, the Department stressed 
Spiritual Giving as opposed to meeting a program. Sample kits for 
canvass chairmen were presented and discussed. 

We feel that cooperation and enthusiasm were wonderful and many 
more churches found that discarding old methods resulted in a great 
Christian experience. 

Mr. L. W. Allen sparked the real highlight — our television program 
was so well received throughout our Diocese and into the Diocese of 
North Carolina. The Reverend Hume Cox's aid was ever present, and 
the November issue of the Mission Herald was devoted to our Steward- 
ship. 

The Department feels that there is a great lack of understanding 
as to the work of our church both in the Diocese and in the world. We 
believe that we should devote a greater effort towards the informing 
of our people regarding the true mission of our church and the activi- 
ties which need support. 

The Department recommends to accomplish this and consequently the 
real stewardship of our people: 

1. More effective support and use of the Mission Herald in close 
cooperation with the Department of Promotion. 



58 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Department of Christian Education for 1957 

2. The use of radio and television as an effective means of education. 

3. The organization of trained teams to visit and present informa- 
tion about our church that would encourage greater stewardship. 

As Chairman, I wish to express my thanks to a most cooperative and 
effective committee and to the Stewardship Chairmen who gave their 
enthusiastic support to the Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. J. POWELL, JR., 
Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF 
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The major emphasis of the Department of Christian Education during 
the calendar year of 1957 and into 1958 has been in two areas. One has 
been to work more closely with the Camps and Conferences Committee, 
in the attempt to work out a more adaptable curriculum for the camp- 
ing seasons. Material has been secured from various sources, and it is 
hoped to adapt a continuing curriculum in a three to five year span. This 
is being done to avoid duplication, and it is felt that the over-all plan 
will give a child who goes from Midget Camp to Senior Camp a more 
complete and comprehensive training. 

The other major emphasis has been to make a complete study in the 
matter of a Diocesan Director of Christian Education. With the per- 
mission of the Bishop, the Department contacted all Dioceses having a 
Diocesan Director of Christian Education. Many questions were asked 
and 95 per cent of those written sent in replies, showing the intense 
interest every Diocese has in this particular area. All were of the opin- 
ion that, due to the new concept and philosophy of teaching, a Diocesan 
Director of Christian Education was almost an absolute necessity. 

The Department Chairman attended one provincial meeting in Char- 
lotte during the past year. The Department also made scholarships 
available for two more clergy to attend the Church and Group Life 
Laboratories. These Laboratories and scholarships were publicized 
through the Mission Herald. Throughout the year the Department also 
attempted to keep the Parishes informed of the activities of the National 
Department by publishing various items in the Mission Herald. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. T. WATERHOUSE, 
Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN OF 
THE DEPARTMENT OF YOUTH 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

This year the young people of the Diocese have been very active un- 
der the leadership of their Youth Commission with Tommy Kehayes from 
Edenton as Diocesan President. 

The two major meetings of the year are the Mid-Winter Youth Rally 
and the Diocesan Convention. 

The Mid-Winter Youth Rally this year was held at St. Johns', Fay- 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 59 

Budget— 1959 

etteville, with well over 200 of our young people attending. 

Discussion groups were set up and one of the most profitable meet- 
ings was a new idea of gathering Young Churchmen's Advisors for an 
informal discussion of how to lead youth groups. At the banquet of the 
Mid-Winter Youth Rally, the young people presented to the Diocese 
for use at Camp Leach a Bell and Howell 16mm. sound projector and a 
two speaker Hi-Fi Unit. 

Plans are now being completed for the annual Convention at Camp 
Leach and prior to this Convention date, several groups of young people 
have gone to our Camp Site to help clean up and prepare for the sum- 
mer activities. One of their projects was to improve the physical proper- 
ties of the Outdoor Chapel. This is now in the process of being done. 
Another project was to attempt to raise $400.00 to pay for the trans- 
portation and expenses of an Indian boy to come to Camp Leach this 
summer. At the last Youth Commission meeting $150.00 was allocated 
to be used for the building of a new kitchen at Camp Leach. 

The Youth Commission feels that this has been a highly successful 
year for the young people and we are honored to have as our President, 
Tommy Kehayes, who at the Provincial meeting of the young people was 
elected Chairman of the youth work throughout the Fourth Province. 

As Director of Youth, I feel that East Carolina has reached a pinnacle 
of enthusiasm amongst the teenage group of our young Churchmen 
and we look forward to the years to come in this particular phase of 
our Church's work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
CHARLES I. PENICK, 
Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF MISSIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Department of Missions, since the last meeting of the Conven- 
tion has had interviews with several diocesan migsio^ary clergy and 
representatives of their mission churches for the purpose of adjusting 
the salaries of these clergy to meet the minimum salary goal set by our 
Bishop. This goal is a minimum salary of $4200 for missionary clergy 
with families and $3600 for unmarried missionary clergy. The mission 
churches are being encouraged by the Department to assume as much 
responsibility as possible in adjusting and increasing the salaries of 
their clergy toward the specified minimum. Cooperation on the part of 
the mission churches has been good, and more of our clergy than ever 
before are now receiving salaries which are more in line with the in- 
creased cost of living. 

With an increase in our Diocesan Budget for the item of Missionary 
Salaries and Travel, the Department of Missions hopes that it may 
report to the next Convention that all, or at least nearly all, of our 
missionary clergy are receiving salaries of not less than the minimum 
goal. 

Respectfully submitted, 
C. EDWARD SHARP, 
Chairman.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON 
STATUS OF PARISHES AND MISSIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your Committee met with a number of the delegations from Parishes 
and Missions, at St. Stephen's Church, Goldsboro, on May 14th and 
15th, 1958, and desire to make the following observations and recom- 
mendations. 

(1) Grace Church, Plymouth is making wonderful progress on liqui- 
dating their building program and are now working on becoming self- 
supporting. Their Rector (the Rev. John E. Taylor) and a delegation from 
their church informed us that they are making plans to become a full 
Parish by the Convention of 1960. 

(2) St. Thomas, Windsor. The Rector (the Rev. John Prior) and a dele- 
gation from their church appeared before our Committee and presented 
evidence of their financial condition and continual growth which would 
enable them to become self-supporting, provided they be relieved of 
responsibility of the Missions in their field (Roxobel, Woodville and 
Avoca). They agreed with us that, until the Convention next year 
(1959), they would provide these missions with services, using Lay 
Readers and the Minister to have Holy Communion for each mission 
once a month. 

Under these conditions, we believe that St. Thomas, Windsor, will 
be able to function as a full Parish. 
NOW, THEREFORE, 
BE IT RESOLVED: 

That St. Thomas Church, Windsor be, and it hereby is, admitted to 
the Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina as a church with full 
Parish status. The resolution was adopted. 

(3) Having only been admitted to the Convention as an Aided Parish 
last year, the Rector (the Rev. John C. Owens) and a delegation from St. 
Thomas, Ahoskie appeared before our Committee today and presented 
evidence of remarkable growth, both spiritually and financially, and are 
now meeting all of their Diocesan obligations. The evidence presented, 



62 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report oi Episcopal Foundation 



and the enthusiasm shown by their delegation convinces us that they 
will be able to function as a full Parish. 

NOW, THEREFORE, 
BE IT RESOLVED: 

That St. Thomas, Ahoskie, be and it hereby is, admitted to the Con- 
vention of the Diocese of East Carolina as a church with full Parish 
status. The resolution was adopted. 

Respectfully submitted, 
STANLEY WOODLAND, 
Chairman. 

REPORT OF EPISCOPAL FOUNDATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

As President of the Episcopal Foundation of the Diocese of East 
Carolina, I am required to report its activities to you at this time. 

It is my pleasure to report some progress — just a beginning — but 
possibly we shouldn't expect too much too soon. The Foundation has 
received one bequest, that being $10,000.00 in cash, which started us 
"in business", so to speak. These funds have been wisely invested by 
our investment committee, under the direction of Mr. Robert J. Powell, 
Jr. as chairman, Mr. L. S. Ficklen and your president. As you know, we 
are not permitted to spend our principal, but must keep that properly 
invested, so as to provide the best possible income, without sacrificing 
safety. 

When a person makes a will, it is regarded as a rather serious un- 
dertaking and generally it is not discussed. But I have been informed 
of three wills made since our last convention, in which our foundation 
is named as a beneficiary. 

Those of you who were present at Beaufort last year heard the 
wonderful statement by a retired servant of the Lord, that he and his 
good wife, who having given all of their active years to the work of 
our church, had decided to leave their home and a substantial amount 
of securities, to carry on the work of the church in our Diocese. I have 
been advised that this will has now been completed, which provides 
approximately $100,000.00 for the future use of our Diocese, through 
this foundation. The other two wills offer smaller amounts, one being 
I am told, for $10,000.00 and the other for $1,000.00. I hope" there have 
been many other wills made, with our foundation named as one of the 
beneficiaries, for 

"In the truest sense you prepare a message to the future 
when you write your will. The bequests you make are a 
reflection of the philosophy that guides your life, as well 
as your proclamation that death will not end your service 
to mankind." 

It seems that we have excellent authority for suggesting to our fellow 
churchmen that they include our foundation in their wills. I refer you 
to our Prayer Book, where on page 320 it says: 

"The minister is ordered, from time to time, to advise the 
people whilst they are in good health, to make wills arrang- 
ing for the disposal of their temporal goods, and when of 
ability, to leave bequests for religious and charitable uses." 

The prayer Book "orders" only the ministers to do this, but it certainly 
doesn't say that laymen and laywomen can't do likewise. 

So far I have referred only to naming the foundation in your will — 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 63 

Report of Episcopal Foundation 

and incidentally, if you have not already done so, may I ask that you 
give serious thought — without delay — to this very important step. 

Now, I'm afraid you have gotten the impression that you have to 
die to do anything for our foundation. That just isn't so! Our booklet 
has a whole page about "gifts during your lifetime": From which I quote: 

Federal Income Tax laws encourage gifts to the church, which may 
frequently result in tax savings. 

Thirty Per Cent (30%) of adjusted gross income, in an individual's 
return, may be deducted for contributions, provided that at least 10% 
of the contributions are made to churches, hospitals, or schools. 

Greater tax savings may be realized by those individuals who own 
securities with unrealized profits, by giving the security instead of cash. 
A deduction may be taken for the full market value at the time of the 
transfer to the church regardless of the. cost or basis of the security. 
Thus, a deduction can be taken for the full value of the security without 
paying any tax on the profits. Gifts of real estate may be treated in 
the same manner. 

Gifts made during one's lifetime can give a substantial Federal in- 
come tax deduction and will not be included in the gross estate for Fed- 
eral Estate and North Carolina Inheritance taxes. 

Such gifts during a lifetime also enable the donor to enjoy the 
great satisfaction of seeing personally the good achieved by his gift. 

When we hear that a single gift of $1,000,000.00 has been made to 
the foundation of our national church; and that the permanent endow- 
ment of Sewanee was increased during last year by $562,000.00, and now 
amounts to $8,000,000.00, providing an income last year of $314,000.00, 
it is further evidence that we of East Carolina acted wisely in setting up 
our own foundation. 

And lest you forget, may I remind you of the purposes for which 
this foundation was organized, as provided in the charter. You will find 
these purposes and objectives listed on page 5 of the booklet, reading as 
follows: 

"This corporation is formed for the purpose of providing a fund, the 
income from which is to be used for: 

A. The development of the religious, educational and charitable work 
of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of East Carolina — 
including but not limited to the following: 

(1) To render financial assistance to worthy young men desirous of 
entering the ministry; 

(2) To render financial assistance to capable young women desiring 
to prepare for religious work, either at home or abroad; 

(3) To supplement the salary of the clergy, when, in the discretion 
of the Board of Directors, the situation justifies, until the local church 
or mission served by such clergy is self-supporting. 

(4) To make suitable provision for such cases of charity throughout 
the diocese as cannot be provided for locally; when recommended by the 
bishop. 

(5) The promotion of new work in the Diocese of East Carolina." 
Can there be any one who could raise objection to an organization, 

with such high and helpful purposes ? 

Believing as we do that, over a period of years, our foundation will 
grow and become a real power for good in East Carolina, we have per- 
fected an organization with our bishop and chancellor always occupying 
the two top posts, they being supported by a number of laymen and 
lay women; which organization we feel is entitled to your full confidence 
and support! 

With some plans now under consideration, we hope soon to begin 



64 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — The Woman's Auxiliary 

building our fund in an impressive manner, and be able to report sub- 
stantial progress at our convention next year. 

In closing, I should like to thank you for your attention, and to ask 
the support and assistance of each and every one of you; reminding you 
that our objective is none other than "to extend the Kingdom of God 
in the Diocese of East Carolina". 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. G. GAITHER, 
President. 

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

I bring greetings to this Convention from the Women of the Diocese. 

Last month at the Seventieth Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxil- 
iary in Elizabeth City our officers presented a vivid picture of how the 
women of East Carolina have sought to fulfill God's purpose for them 
through Worship, Study, Fellowship and Service. 

Since worship is placed at the very core of all Christian endeavor, 
greater emphasis has been placed on this particular field. We learned 
that in all organized Auxiliaries there is a Chairman of the Department 
of Devotions, whose responsibility it is to see that each meeting is begun 
with meditation and prayer, thus seeking God's purpose and guidance 
in all that is to take place at that gathering. With very few exceptions 
there were from one to eight Corporate Communion Services held for 
the members of each of the local Auxiliaries. On February 17th, there 
was a Quiet Day held in St. Peter's, Washington for the Convocation of 
Edenton, and the following day the Convocation of Wilmington held a 
Quiet Day at St. Andrews at Wrightsville Sound, with the Rev. Hunley 
Elebash serving as our leader both days. There were several other 
Quiet Days held by individual Auxiliaries. There was an increase in the 
number of Prayer Groups reported, and plans have been made to start 
others. Several Auxiliaries have made Bible Study a part of their month- 
ly meetings, and a new emphasis has been placed on regular corporate 
worship and private devotions. In this line, we are looking forward to 
a three day Retreat, led by Miss Estelle Carver, at Camp Leach next 
June the 11th, 12th and 13th. 

As we have sought to become better Christians through worship, we 
have also sought to become better informed Christians through study. 
Increased Bible study, which I have just mentioned, and a growing de- 
mand for church magazines and books, show that the women are seeking 
to broaden their knowledge about our Church. There were a number 
of Lenten study classes on the Episcopal Church in Japan, and other 
mission fields. The Department of Christian Education has provided 
further opportunities for study at local Auxiliary meetings through 
programs consisting of guest speakers, movies, slides, plays and dis- 
cussion groups. Last summer a group of about forty women attended 
the Woman's Auxiliary Conference at Camp Leach where we had daily 
courses of study led by Bishop Wright, Mrs. John Morson, and Miss 
Estelle Carver each morning, workshops on the various Departments of 
the Woman's Auxiliary in the afternoons, and guest speakers following 
our daily Evening Services. Later in the summer a representative group 
of our women attended the Adult Clergy Conference at Kanuga, which 
was so ably directed by Bishop Wright. There we were privileged to 
hear such leaders in our Church as Dr. Albert T. Mollegen, Dr. Chad 
Walsh, Dr. Edward McCrady, Mrs. William Palmer, and others. At our 
Convocational Meetings last Fall we received first hand information about 
Mission work in Liberia from Father Joseph Parcell, and at the Pro- 
vincial Meeting in Charlotte we were brought up to date on the Church 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 65 

Report — The Woman's Auxiliary 

of South India by the Rt. Rev. Arthur Carl Lichtenberger, a member of 
the team delegated by the 1955 General Convention to go to India and 
report on this ecumenical venture. At our recent Annual Meeting the 
Rev. Harry W. Hansen, who is home on leave after six years in Japan, 
delighted us with his interesting picture of Japanese Missions, the Rev. 
Clifford Stanley, Ph.D., acquainted us with what goes on at Virginia 
Theological Seminary; Dr. Thomas V. Barrett gave a refreshing talk on 
Kanuga; Mrs. William Marmion pointed out new trends in the Woman's 
Auxiliary; and the conditions, needs, and progress of our own Diocese 
were presented by Mr. Robert Powell and Bishop Wright. This Fall a 
full quota of delegates are planning to attend the Triennial Meeting 
of the Woman's Auxiliary at Miami Beach. So you can see that the 
members of the Woman's Auxiliary not only have had many opportuni- 
ties, but have taken advantage of these opportunities to become familiar 
with our Church and its work at home and abroad. 

Out of our worshipping and studying together has come a genuine 
Christian concern for others, whether they be newcomers to our home 
towns, close friends, difficult and unattractive acquaintances, or pagans 
in some distant land. We have begun to learn the true meaning of fel- 
lowship as we lived together in Christian communities such as Kanuga 
and Camp Leach, and also to feel that one of the most important results 
of even a money raising project, such as a Bazaar, is to draw people 
together as they serve their Master. This fellowship, and the desire to 
extend it to others, has put meaning and purpose into Christian Social 
Relations, whether we seek to care for the sick, feed the hungry, send 
clothes to the needy, or give companionship to the lonely. These things 
must be done in spirit of fellowship — that same fellowship that is grow- 
ing, and must continue to grow into a loving concern, not just for those 
in our own local church, or even in the Diocese of East Carolina, but for 
all of mankind. 

Now we come to service. What kind of service ? To be acceptable 
it must be considered an opportunity to serve Him whom we worship. 
To be worthwhile it must be performed in the enlightened manner of 
a well informed Christian. To be well received, it must spring from a 
Christ-like desire to share what we have with others. Thus God would 
have us give of ourselves and our means. 

There is no monetary value that can be placed on much of the serv- 
ice rendered by the members of the Woman's Auxiliary. However, our 
reports show that they have not limited themselves to their budget of 
$4,500.00, for they have given a total of $74,358.55. Of this amount $11,- 
948.32 was given through the United Thank Offering for the great 
missionary work of the Church. Reading over the yearly reports of the 
Auxiliaries in this Diocese, I was impressed with the wide scope of their 
service, some of which we shall now review. 

Within our Diocese substantial gifts were made to Good Shepherd 
Hospital, Camp Leach, Alice Hoffman Conference Center, Camp Ocean- 
side, the Mission Herald, Builders for Christ, and to the Bishop's Edu- 
cational Fund. $400.00 was divided equally between the salary and the 
program of our Student Worker at East Carolina College in Greenville. 
Donations were made to a number of Church and Parish House Build- 
ing Funds, and three other Parish Houses were aided by having a hard 
wood floor laid in one, draperies hung in another, and a kitchen com- 
pleted in the third. Among the missions that were helped financially 
were St. Jude's in Aurora, St. Andrew's in Greenville, St. George's at 
Lake Landing, and Galilee Mission, Creswell; and donations were made 
to the discretionary funds of two mission priests. Almost all Auxiliaries 
took an active part in the work among young people, and in many in- 
stances gave scholarships to summer camps at either Camp Oceanside, 
Camp Leach or Kanuga. Many needy families were supplied with food, 
clothing and money, and three county homes were visited and gifts 
taken there. The Altar Guild has supplied linens for two mission church-

es, and stands ready to help others when the need is made known. This 
is a part of the women's service within the Diocese, and you will notice 
I haven't even mentioned that steady job of cooking. 

Our largest gift outside the Diocese was the United Thank Offering. 
In addition to this, both foreign and domestic missions and missionaries 
were helped through our prayers and gifts. A total of over $3,000.00 was 
sent to missionaries or missions in Japan, Alaska, Hong Kong, Liberia, 
Brazil, Haiti, India, Puerto Rico, Okinawa, and Hawaii. Further gifts 
were sent to The Presiding Bishop's Fund for Foreign Relief, Church 
World Service, KEEP, and Migrant Workers, and for another year 
two Korean orphans were fed, clothed, and educated. The Thompson 
Orphanage was aided both financially and through gifts of clothing and 
Christmas presents. Kanuga, Patterson School, St. Andrew's School at 
Sewanee, the Home of Deaconesses, and the provincial radio program, 
"Another Chance", received substantial gifts. The women joined others 
in their support of 15 organizations such as the United Council of 
Church Women, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and the Red Cross. This 
is enough to let you see how varied and world-wide the service has been. 

Archbishop Temple has said ". . . The Almighty God seeks to win 
us to fellowship with Himself by putting some part of His purpose in 
our hands. He makes Himself dependent upon us. . . . He asks for 
our service." With the understanding help of our Clergy, and the in- 
valuable guidance of our Bishop, the Women of our Church are seeking 
to learn what part of God's purpose lies in their hands, and to offer 
themselves in service for the fulfillment of same. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GERTRUDE S. ROSEVEAR, 
President. 

THE LAYMEN'S ASSOCIATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Laymen's Association has made great strides during the past 
two years under the able and dedicated leadership of Mr. Frank Saun- 
ders. We hope we may continue his work. 

In respect of traveling, communications, etc., we have now divided 
our Diocese into seven Lay Districts with a chairman in each district. 
Each chairman, save one, has attended the Laymen's Training Course 
in Alexandria, Virginia. 

Our prime objective is the support of all programs of our church 
with time, talent and wealth to the end that the Gospel may be spread 
throughout the world. 

On the home front our activities will include: 

1. Lay Readers Pools in each Lay District available so that every 
pulpit in every church will be filled each Sunday. 

2. More effective programs for the Men's Club of each church; pro- 
grams that will result in a deeper understanding of our personal wit- 
ness and will prepare us to rise up as men of God. 

3. The encouraging of more men to "offer themselves as reasonable 
holy and living sacrifices to God and the spread of His truth as re- 
vealed in Christ". 

4. The active support of the Diocesan and Parish Departments. 

5. The establishment of more chapters of the Brotherhood of St. 
Andrew. 

6. Closer cooperation with the Woman's Auxiliary. 

7. An effective keyman in every parish.

I know that the men of our church will support this program, and 
with God's help, we will further the mission of the church in the Dio- 
cese of East Carolina.

Chairman. 

THE CHURCH PENSION FUND REPORT 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your Chairman for the Church Pension Fund has received all data 
and information pertaining to the pension payments to retired clergy 
and survivors of clergymen and submit the same to the Secretary of the 
Diocese. 

During 1957 the Rev. George E. Bunn and the Rev. S. N. Griffith 
were added to list of clergy retired bringing to ten the number of clergy 
receiving grants in the Diocese of East Carolina along with thirteen 
survivors of clergy. 

The Church Pension Fund and its affiliates continues to give to the 
church and clergy an effective answer to many problems. We recommend 
its continued use and study by clergy and vestrymen. 

Respectfully submitted, 
FRANCIS G. JOHNSON, 
Chairman.

UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

As the University of the South celebrates its Centennial Year we 
find it faithful to the plans its founders adopted in 1857. The Univer- 
sity has continued under the sole and perpetual direction of the Protest- 
ant Episcopal Church in a century in which many church colleges aban- 
doned their denominational ties. The University has not yet reached the 
heights dreamed of by the founders, but Southern Episcopalians can 



68 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report University oi the South 

well be proud of their educational center, the greatest investment in 
education ever made by the Episcopal Church in America. 

The Diocese of East Carolina has been a part of the University since 
the establishment of the Diocese in 1883. Each Bishop has served on 
the Board of Trustees and the present Bishop is a graduate of the College 
of Arts and Sciences. The ties of the Diocese and the University go 
back to the founding of the school in 1857. Bishop Thomas Atkinson of 
Wilmington signed the manifesto of the Southern Bishops in 1856 calling 
for the establishment of the University, and at the founding meeting of 
the Board on Lookout Mountain July 4, 1857, North Carolina was repre- 
sented by the Rev. Moses Ashley Curtis and Thomas D. Warren. 

BUILDING PROGRAM 

The Centennial Service on Commencement Day, June 9, will see most 
of the major Centennial goals completed or well under way. Since the 
last report of your Trustees, the $425,000 renovation of St. Luke's Hall, 
plant of the School of Theology, has been completed. For Sewanee's 
second century St. Luke's will have first class accommodations for the 
training of ministers. St. Luke's was rebuilt on faith and credit, with 
about $100,000 yet to be raised. Memorial gifts for classrooms, profes- 
sors' offices, and students' rooms are being sought. Student housing 
for seven married theological students has been added by the Diocese of 
South Florida, Tennessee, and Upper South Carolina. Two houses for 
married Seminarians have been given by the Diocese of Alabama and 
are now under construction. 

The Juhan Gymnasium has been completed and provides facilities 
for recreation, swimming, basketball, bowling, handball, indoor tennis, 
and gymnastics. 

For housing parents, alumni and other visitors, the Sewanee Inn 
motel with 15 units has been given by friends of the University. Se- 
wanee Inn's "Claramont" Restaurant with public and private dining 
rooms for a total seating capacity of 200 opened March 7. 

The completion of All Saints' Chapel is under way and no longer does 
the 1905 cornerstone sit lonely on the grass. The building has grown 
to encompass it, while the stone has been turned to fit the angled wall 
of the new chancel. 

ENROLLMENT 

Enrollment reached a maximum and a new high in the College of 
Arts and Sciences when 570 students registered in September. Sewanee 
Military Academy has 266 cadets, also a record. Eighty students are at 
St. Luke's. There are two college students, and two academy cadets from 
East Carolina. The University continues to receive academic honors. 
Last year the Chicago Tribune survey rated Sewanee eighth among all 
men's colleges in the country, and first in the South. 

SUMMARY 

There are no obstacles except our own indifference. For years Se- 
wanee has only suffered in comparison with other institutions in terms 
of financial means. Now the generosity and foresight of the owning 
Episcopalians are removing that last roadblock. During 1957 the own- 
ing Dioceses contributed $171,628 for operating expenses toward their 
goal of $1.00 per communicant uer year. Of this amount East Carolina 
had contributed $2,681.47. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES I. PENICK, Member 
of the Board of Trustees. 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 69 



Report — Good Shepherd Hospital 



REPORT OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Today, I shall present to you the highlights of the Annual Report I 
made to the Board of Directors of the Good Shepherd Hospital at its 
Annual Board meeting last February. 

Today, I have the privilege to present to you my 12th Annual 
Report of the Good Shepherd Hospital. The year of 1957 was a trying 
one for us financially and medically, under our "Go forward program". 

Our big project for 1957 was the building of a new dietary depart- 
ment. This project was realized through funds received from the Ford 
Foundation, The Duke Endowment and revenue from the hospital. This 
project cost us over $40,000.00. 

We, also, enlarged and redecorated our nursery and delivery room. 
The old kitchen is now being used for storing supplies and the old 
dining room has been converted into a record room. 

With the ending of our fiscal year, December 31, 1957, we had 34 
employees on our payroll. During the year of 1957, we took in in receipts 
from all sources, $141,857.56, and disbursed in the amount of $163,232.28. 
This year for the first time since 1948, the hospital was not able to pay 
all of its bills during the year. At the end of the year 1957, we had a 
total of $2,057.56 outstanding bills payable— with only $365.02 in the 
bank. The main reason for this deficit this year was because we had 
taken approximately $10,000.00 from our operating account to pay for 
some of our equipment for our kitchen and for other capital use. 

During the year of 1957, we received from the Welfare Department 
$13,706.91. This money was used in treating welfare cases from Craven, 
Jones and Pamlico Counties. From the N. C. Blind Commission, the 
Medicare and the Vocational Rehabilitation Commission we received 
$3,893.79. This money represented services rendered to indigent patients, 
sponsored by the State of North Carolina. From the Kate B. Reynolds 
Trust Fund we received $2,523.51. From the Duke Endowment $10,- 
282.00. However, $7,500.00 of this was designated for capital purposes. 

The cost of hospitalization is continuing to increase from day to day, 
and, the collection of patient's bills are becoming harder each day. Last 
year, our per diem was $11.91 per day. This year our per diem cost 
increased to $13.10 per day. 

Our big project for 1958 will be to change all entrances and exit 
doors according to specifications of the North Carolina Fire Marshall. 
We are also planning to construct a desirable emergency entrance. This 
project will cost us approximately $8,000. We are, also, expecting to 
complete a chapel in the hospital this year. This project is being spon- 
sored by our chaplain, the Rev. F. G. Johnson, and the Men's Group of 
Christ Episcopal Church, New Bern, North Carolina. 

In conclusion, I would like to say, despite the progress achieved dur- 
ing 1957, our security has been threatened by a lack of funds with which 
to carry on. The increased cost of hospital supplies reflected in our in- 
creased expenses for 1957, means that some way must be found by which 
this gap may be bridged between our income and our expenses. 

Respectfully submitted, 
O. T. FAISON, 

Secretary-Treasurer. 



70 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — St. Mary's Junior College 

REPORT OF ST. MARY'S JUNIOR COLLEGE 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The year 1957-58 is now rapidly approaching its conclusion. I am 
happy to report the significant events of the year that has passed. 

Eight new faculty appointments were made in the months preceding 
the opening of the fall session. These were made as a result of two 
retirements, one death, and two resignations. Three new members were 
selected as additional instructors to take care of the increased enrollment 
and to enrich the teaching program. Three of the appointees were men 
and five were women. Included in this group was the Rev. Moultrie Guer- 
ry, D.D., who began his service as Chaplain in September. Dr. Guerry 
replaces the Rev. I. Harding Hughes who served St. Mary's as Chaplain 
for 15 years prior to his retirement last June. 

The enrollment for the 1958-59 session has been completed. Many 
excellent applications were received in the months preceding the final 
selection date of May first. A few minor changes will take place in the 
summer months but these are expected to be quite limited in number. We 
have processed about fifty more applications during this year than in 
a similar period a year ago. 

Enrollment pressure will, no doubt, become greater in the years 
ahead as larger groups of students will be in the age bracket eligible 
for entrance. Our admissions committee is exercising due care to select 
the best qualified students from those who apply. It is encouraging to 
find that many of our friends in the church recommend St. Mary's to 
their daughters and to the daughters of those who are in their churches 
and communities. 

Penick Hall, our new dormitory, was opened to students in Sep- 
tember. This beautiful building, named in honor of Bishop Penick, 
houses fifty-six students. It was built, as you may recall from previous 
reports, from funds secured through the Federal Housing and Home 
Finance Agency. The mortgage will be retired by annual payments over 
a long period of time. Enrollment was increased as a result of the 
space that became available. Thirty-five additional students were ac- 
cepted this year. Fewer students were placed in other buildings in order 
to reduce crowded conditions that had existed for a long time. It is also 
hoped that extensive renovations in these buildings, especially in the 
bathroom facilities can now be accomplished. 

During the summer of 1957 a new floor was put in the gymnasium, 
road repair work was carried on, and curbing on the front campus was 
completed. The chaplain's house was completely renovated in preparation 
of its new occupants. The summer of 1958 will see a complete renovation 
of the first floor of East Rock, the administration building. Other physi- 
cal changes will take place in the dormitories as funds permit. 

The Board of Trustees reviewed a study of operation costs and an- 
ticipated revenue which was presented to it. The Board authorized a 
further study of fees by the executive committee. This committee raised 
the General Charge for the 1958-59 session and at the same time put 
through salary increases for faculty and staff members. These im- 
provements were needed to bring our salary schedules more nearly in 
line with those of comparable institutions. Even with the new rates in 
effect St. Mary's charges will still be well below the average of its 
competitors. 

If St. Mary's is to meet the challenge of the future, many important 
decisions will have to be faced in the period just ahead. College enroll- 
ments will swell rapidly in the next few years. Some estimates predict 
a 200% increase by 1970; others are more conservative. If we wish to 
maintain our same relative position we must be prepared to increase 



SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 71 

Report — Thompson Orphanage 

enrollment beyond our present capacity. This will present problems that 
can not be solved by additional dormitory space alone. Our library is in 
need of expansion, changes should take place in the dining room, more 
space will be needed for administration. The Board of Trustees is mak- 
ing plans for study of all these areas. The St. Mary's of tomorrow must 
live up to the great tradition of the past. 

Respectfully submitted, 
RICHARD G. STONE, 
President. 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MANAGERS OF 
THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Fifth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The year 1957 has been a difficult one for us because of three things: 

1. We have not recovered from the misunderstanding in the minds 
of many of our supporters that we are rich. Last year (1956) I devoted 
most of my report to an explanation of our land lease and how it works. 
This explanation has helped our supporters to understand our problem. 

2. Our Staff: During the year we lost two matrons by death. Mrs. 
Annie Lyle Wilkerson who had been with us for 11 years. She was in 
charge of Osborne Cottage. This cottage houses our younger children, 
both boys and girls, age 6 to 8. They need a mother type matron that 
understands children and can train them or teach them the things they 
have missed by not having a real mother. Mrs. Reola Leech had been 
with us for 22 years. She was in charge of W. J. Smith Cottage. This 
cottage houses our Junior age boys, age 9 to 12. This is a difficult age 
and Mrs. Leech could take up where Mrs. Wilkerson left off and develop 
for us a well mannered, well behaved boy. Unless you were the super- 
intendent of this institution you would not realize the difficulty of re- 
placing these two fine ladies that had meant so much to the Thompson 
Orphanage. The rest of our staff is also new. The year 1957 brought 
us many staff problems; however, we are hopeful and believe that we 
will soon have a strong staff. 

3. Our Farm: The first part of 1957 was too wet. We could not har- 
vest our hay and grain or prepare our land for planting. The weather 
continued like this until July then it turned dry and what we had plant- 
ed was ruined. We gathered less than one-half of our crops. While the 
rain ruined the crops our pasture was the best ever. This carried our 
livestock through the whole year. On the farm we grew the following: 
This is farm prices; grain, hay and vegetables, $6,901.75; pork and beef, 
$2,720.88; milk, $11,305.30; eggs, $3,382.15 a total of $24,310.08. Our 
registered Jersey Herd is one of the best. It has been developed here at 
the Orphanage since 1942 from eight cows bought by some business men 
of Charlotte and Gastonia. Our beef herd is ample to take care of our 
beef demand. This herd was a gift of four cows and a bull from Mr. 
George Poston, Gastonia, N. C. The hogs were a gift from Dr. and Mrs. 
E. R. Hipp in 1947. The chickens are from the 4-H project. My farm 
machinery was a gift from the late Mrs. Stanton of Williamston, N. C. 
The farm means much to us because we use it as a training program. 

Our population is divided as follows: 16 full orphans, 20 mother dead, 
32 father dead, 8 both parents living, a total of 76. There are 36 boys 
and 40 girls. The distribution over the state by counties is as follows: 
Alamance, 3; Beaufort, 3, Burke, 3; Caldwell, 5; Chatham, 1; Craven, 
3; Durham, 3; Edgecomb, 3; Forsythe, 2; Iredell, 1; Lenoir, 1; Meck- 
lenburg, 18; Nash, 2; New Hanover, 2; Rockingham, 2; Rowan, 3; Samp- 
son, 4; Swain, 3; Vance, 6; Wake, 3; Wayne, 5. 

Since 1951 our population has declined. This is due to Social Security 



72 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report — Thompson Orphanage 



and a better state and county welfare program. The children who come 
to us today are more needy and are harder to work with than before 
1951. These children come from all over North Carolina and are referred 
to us by either a Rector or a layman of our Church. They continue to do 
good school work and are good citizens in our community. Now those 
who can qualify are able to go to college. This year we have two boys 
at the U. of N. C, a girl at R.P.I, in Richmond and 2 girls in business 
school. 

Results of our 1957 Thanksgiving Offering to date is as follows: 
Diocese of East Carolina, $5,893.38; Diocese of North Carolina, $24,- 
128.93; Diocese of Western North Carolina, $2,357.24; Special Offering, 
$90.00; Grand Total, $32,469.55. 

In thinking about the success of Thompson Orphanage it always oc- 
curs to me that everything that we have was given to us. I feel that 
our work is so important that you will continue to give for its support. 
Let me thank all who have contributed to the Thompson Orphanage and 
I hope that you will continue to keep us in your mind and heart as we 
need your continued support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

M. D. WHISNANT, 

Superintendent.

nance, distributed copies of the 1960 budget to all delegates

vention, (see page 10) . 

It was moved and seconded that the 1960 Budget be ac- 
cepted, (see page 64). 

The Rev. George B. Holmes asked why the request 
of the Department of Evangelism for $100 had not been in- 
cluded in the Budget and also inquired if the figures were 
not rather high for Missionary Salaries and Premiums of Cler- 
gy which total one third of the budget. 

The Rev. C. Edward Sharp, Chairman of the Department

other Dioceses. He explained the work that was being done 
with Mission Churches and clergy. 

It was moved and carried to add $100 to the budget for 
the Department of Evangelism. 

The Bishop spoke on the extremely complicated problem 
of Missions and The Devoluntionary Process the Diocese was 
working on by which the Missions would increase gradually 
their assuming of more and more of their own support. 

Upon questioning it was revealed the Apportionments for 
1960 would undoubtedly have to be increased somewhat since 
the Budget totals a 6.7% increase. 

The motion to approve the Budget for 1960 as amended 
in the amount of $162,179.30 was carried, (see page 64). 

A resolution was offered and carried in regard to the re-

cent decease of the Rt. Rev. Edwin Anderson Penick, Bishop of

pone consideration until Thursday morning, (see page 70).

the Diocese, Mr. Junius D. Grimes, Sr. : — 

"When the recording Angel lists God's 'good and faith-

ful servants', we are satisfied he will inscribe among the 
first, the name of Junius D. Grimes. 

Mr. Grimes died in his hometown of Washington, N. C, 
on Feb. 7, 1959. He was eighty years of age. From his early 
manhood he had taken an active and constructive interest in 
the work of the Church he loved so well. In 1945 he was named 
Chancellor of the Diocese of East Carolina and served as such 
the remainder of his life. 

Generally recognized as a lawyer of superior ability, he 
was equally outstanding in his service to the Church. He let 
nothing interfere with his duties of Chancellor. An ardent 
student of the Canons of his Church and a master of parlia- 
mentary law made him the indispensable member of all de- 
liberations of the Diocese. The time will not come when those 
who read the proceedings of the Diocese of East Carolina can 
fail to see the reflection of the able and sincere guidance of 
this great man. 

Mr. Grimes was blessed with a distinguished and honored 
heritage. A gentlemen in every sense of the word, his life 
will be an inspiration for those who seek the right." 

The Rev. Hunley A. Elebash, Chairman, gave the report 
of the Department of Christian Social Relations. 

The Rev. Roscoe C. Hauser presented a resolution which 
was passed asking that a Committee be appointed to consider 
the time and length of the Convention and stated the value 
of having the Convention in January when the Budget for 
the current year could be approved. 

The Rev. Hunley A. Elebash, Chairman, gave the report 
of the nominees selected by his Committee for various offices. 
Elections were set for the morning session on Thursday and 
the voting method of plurality was adopted. 

The Convention recessed at 5:05 P.M. 

At 5:20 a marker was unveiled in front of St. Paul's

er was held in St. Paul's Church. Bishop Wright presided and

Raby Edwards and the Rev. John C. Owens. The Rt. Rev. 
J. Brooks Moseley, Bishop of the Diocese of Delaware, de-

SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 29 

The Bishop's Address 

THE BISHOP'S ADDRESS 

Brethren of the Clergy and Laity: 

"Grace be unto you and Peace from God our Father and 
the Lord Jesus Christ." 

I welcome you today to the Seventy-Sixth Annual Con- 
vention of the Diocese of East Carolina and the 14th over 
which I have had the privilege of presiding. 

We are meeting today in historic St. Paul's Church, Wil- 
mington, a Parish that has a history of useful and effective 
service for the past 100 years. On May 7, 1859 St. Paul's 
Church was received as a Parish into the Convention of the 
Diocese of North Carolina meeting in Goldsboro. The first 
Rector, the Rev. Henry Skinner, was called in the summer of 
1861. He served only a few months when the Rev. Daniel 
Morelle took charge of the work. 

The Church was closed in 1862, partly on account of the 
war, and partly on account of the epidemic of Yellow Fever 
which prevailed during the latter part of that year. At this 
time the Communicants numbered 34 white persons and 16 
colored persons. 

The Church building was remodeled and enlarged in 1872, 
with the Rev. Thomas Ambler, Rector, and the Services con- 
tinued here under the Rectorship of the Rev. C. L. Arnold, the 
Rev. F. N. Skinner, the Rev. Milton Barber, the Rev. W. T. 
Dickinson, and the Rev. A. B. Seabrease, until Bishop Robert 
Strange asked the Vestry to move the Church to the eastern 
part of the City on Market Street, to meet the demands of the 
growing suburbs. A lot on the corner of Sixteenth and Market 
Streets and extending to Princess Street was purchased in 
1912 and a brick veneered Church approximately 35 by 50 ft. 
was built. 

The first Rector of the Parish, in its new location, the 
Rev. Mr. Moody, served only a few months. Succeeding him 
the Rev. Eugene Heald served from 1914-16, the Rev. D. L. 
Gwathney from 1916-19, the Rev. Ambler M. Blackford from 
1919-1921. The present Rector, the Rev. Alexander Miller, 
began his Ministry in December 1921. 

In 1925 plans were made "for the erection of such build- 
ings as would more adequately meet the needs of the Parish 
in this rapidly growing section of the City." The building 
program included a new Church Building, a Parish House, and 
a Rectory. During the years 1927-1928 the present Parish 
House was built and furnished. The estimated value of this 
building at this time is $140-150 thousand dollars. The sec- 
ond unit in the building program, a Rectory, was completed in 
1936. Early in 1956, the Vestry declared its intention to be- 



30 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

The Bishop's Address 

gin the work of construction of the new Church Building. The 
work of construction was started in October 1956. The first 
Service was held in the new Church Building on Whitsunday 
1958. The new Church Building is a memorial to the Rt. Rev. 
Thomas C. Darst, D.D., and those who worked with him during 
the thirty years of his Ministry as third Bishop of the Diocese 
of East Carolina. 

The Rev. Alexander Miller was Archdeacon of the Wil- 
mington Convocation at the time he accepted the call to St. 
Paul's Parish. This is the 38th year of his Rectorship. He 
served for a number of years as a member of the Executive 
Council of the Diocese, being Chairman of the Promotion De- 
partment. He was elected to two General Conventions. He 
has served for years as a member and Chairman of the Board 
of Examining Chaplains of the Diocese. For several years 
he was in charge of the Senior Camp at Camp Leach. He 
has served his community through the years in many ways 
and in many capacities. Five times he served as Chairman of 
the Board of the Associated Charities of Wilmington. Mrs. 
Miller served the Diocese for many years as Diocesan Coun- 
sellor for the Young People's Service League, also as Camp 
Mother for the Senior Camp. Her unselfish devotion to all 
phases of Parish work is recognized as a contributing factor 
to Parish accomplishments and growth. 

RT. REV. EDWIN ANDERSON PENICK, D.D. 

On April 6 in Chapel Hill (day before yesterday) the Rt. 
Rev. Edwin Anderson Penick passed into God's eternal hands. 
The burial service is being held today in Raleigh while this 
Convention is going on. I spent yesterday in Raleigh with 
Mrs. Penick and her son, the Rev. Charles I. Penick, and told 
them of our love and sympathy at this time. They know that 
the Diocese of East Carolina has the Penick family in their 
prayers this day. Bishop Penick was the Senior Bishop of our 
Church, in active service. He became 72 years of age last 
Saturday and would have retired, officially, at the coming 
Diocesan Convention next month. He has been a great leader 
in our beloved Church and will be sorely missed. A man of 
deep faith, courage, and Christian statesmanship, he will be 
long remembered by all of us. May God bless him and may 
light perpetual shine upon him. 

THE HONORABLE JUNIUS DANIEL GRIMES, SR. 

On February 7, 1959 our Diocese suffered a tremendous 
loss in the death of the Honorable Junius Daniel Grimes, Sr. 
the beloved Chancellor of the Diocese of East Carolina. 

I shall miss Mr. Grimes more than I can possibly express. 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 31 



The Bishop's Address 



When I came as Bishop in the year 1945, I immediately nomi- 
nated him as Chancellor and we have been devoted friends 
and fellow-workers ever since. Never have I called upon him 
that he has not given unsparingly of his time and energy. As 
Chancellor of the Diocese, he has given hundreds of hours to 
the legal work of the Kingdom of God in East Carolina, always 
gladly, without compensation. 

Perhaps the greatest characteristic of Mr. Grimes was 
his deep understanding of human nature and his desire to be 
helpful to those in need. Many times have I seen this mani- 
fested in East Carolina. He has truly been a loyal servant to 
his beloved Diocese, a true friend to many persons, and a faith- 
ful Disciple of his Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. 

May God bless him, and may he go "from strength to 
strength in His life of perfect service." 

NEW CLERGY IN THE DIOCESE 

Since the last meeting of our Convention, the following 
new men have been added to our Diocesan Clergy family. The 
Rev. John J. Ormond, formerly of the Diocese of Louisiana, 
is now Rector of the Church of the Advent, Williamston. The 
Rev. D. Raby Edwards, who graduated from the Virginia 
Seminary in June, is now Priest-in-Charge of St. Christo- 
pher's Church, Havelock. The Rev. John Broome, who gradu- 
ated from the Virginia Seminary in June, is now Priest-in- 
Charge of St. James' Church, Belhaven, and St. Matthews', 
Yeatesville. The Rev. Richard C. Patton, formerly of the 
Diocese of Upper South Carolina, is now Rector of the Church 
of the Holy Cross, Aurora, and St. John's Church, Bonner- 
ton. The Rev. Frederick B. Drane, who recently retired from 
the Diocese of North Carolina, is now serving temporarily 
Grace Church, Woodville, and St. Mark's Church, Roxobel. 

Within the next two months two additional Clergy will 
be added to our Diocesan life. The Rev. Conway D. Thorn- 
burgh, who will graduate from the Virginia Seminary, will 
be Deacon-in-Charge of Christ Church, Hope Mills and Good 
Shepherd Church, Tolar-Hart. The Rev. Wallace I. Wolver- 
ton, Jr., who will graduate from the Church Divinity School of 
the Pacific, will become Deacon-in-Charge of St. Philip's 
Church, Fayetteville, working under the direction of the Rev. 
Roscoe C. Hauser and serving also, under Mr. Hauser, in St. 
John's Church, Fayetteville. 

We most heartily welcome these additions to our East 
Carolina fellowship of Clergy and later in this meeting I shall 
introduce those who are present to this Convention. 

During the past year the only transfer we have had leav- 
ing the Diocese is the Rev. Lloyd W. Fonvielle, who trans- 



32 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

The Bishop's Address 

ferred to the Diocese of Washington. May God bless him and 
may he continue to do the Church's work in this other area of 
usefulness. 

CONFIRMATIONS IN THE DIOCESE 

During the past year we have had, by a good margin, the 
largest number of Confirmations in the history of the Diocese. 
During the year 561 persons were Confirmed. This repre- 
sents an increase, through Confirmation, of approximately 
7% of our present Communicant strength. Particularly to 
be commended this year, I feel are two of our mission fields. 
The field being served by the Rev. Herbert C. Gravely of 
St. John's and St. Mark's, Grifton, and St. James' Church, Ay- 
den, presented 43 persons for Confirmation, representing a 
35% addition to the Communicant strength of these churches. 
St. Christopher's Church, Havelock, being, served by the Rev. 
Raby Edwards, presented 27 persons for Confirmation, repre- 
senting a 51% addition to the Communicant strength of this 
Church. The work of these two men stands out in our Con- 
firmation records and is a tribute to the fine cooperation that 
exists within these two mission fields. Confirmation is a 
joint responsibility of Minister and people and represents, in 
no small measure, the Evangelistic effort and interest of a 
Congregation. 

I would also like to particularly commend the Rev. Edwin 
E. Kirton and the Communicants of St. Mark's Church, Wil- 
mington, who have had as their objective this past year "the 
uniting of families through Confirmation" and "the sponsor- 
ing of Confirmation Candidates" by Communicants of the 
Church. An outstanding record has been made at St. Mark's 
in this area and our congratulations go to the Rev. Mr. Kirton 
and his Congregation. 

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MISSIONARY STRATEGY 

Ever since I have been Bishop of this Diocese, I have 
realized that one of our greatest needs is the development of 
an adequate missionary policy and strategy for this Diocese. 
Such a policy is needed far more in such a Diocese as ours 
than in newer, larger, and, in general, the Western Dioceses 
of our Church. The problems of East Carolina are problems 
characteristic of the Southeastern Seaboard of the country, 
where the Church has been here a long time, and the number 
of small church buildings and small congregations is very 
large in proportion to the population and the total Diocesan 
Communicants (this is true, in my estimation, in East Caro- 
lina more than in any other Diocese of the Church, with the 
possible exception of the Diocese of South Carolina compris- 
ing the Eastern Seaboard area of that state.) 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 33 

The Bishop's Address 

In this Southeastern Seaboard area substantial churches 
built, for example, 150 to 200 years ago, now find themselves in 
crossroad communities with a Church structure that the small 
Congregation now finds itself unable to maintain adequately 
and distances between Churches that once seemed very great 
have now been shortened to 10 or 15 minute drives with mod- 
ern roads and modern means of communication. 

To develop a strategy for this picture, the Diocese has 
brought to bear the best technical advice and study that the 
Church has to offer — a complete Diocesan Survey — and this 
evaluation and forward movement whenever possible is a con- 
stant objective of the Bishop and the Executive Council of 
the Diocese. We must constantly bear in mind two things. 
First, the strategy and best possible use of the funds that we 
have available for missionary work and, second, the respon- 
sibility that the Church always has for all of its communi- 
cants — "Wherever two or there are gathered together" — 
"whatsoever ye do unto the least of these my brethren" — 
large numbers cannot always be the sole determining factor. 
We have a responsibility to each Communicant of the Diocese. 
We must always keep in mind these two factors and there is 
no easy solution. 

Now it is my hope that we will be able to single out one 
particular missionary area of the Diocese each year and make 
a determined effort to use the best strategy that we have to 
offer, in spite of the additional cost and to move forward in 
that particular missionary field. I would like to see the bud- 
get of the Diocese have an extra item each year marked 
"Missionary Church Extension" to be used only for that pur- 
pose and in the most strategic spot that we can evaluate in 
our mission field. 

In line with this, beginning in July, we are making an 
extra effort in our Fayetteville Mission Churches, thinking of 
this area as the most strategic at the present time. The popu- 
lation growth in Fayetteville is perhaps the largest in the 
Diocese. The added opportunity for service at Fort Bragg 
and the large Veterans' Hospital in Fayetteville make it im- 
perative that we revaluate our effort. Whereas, for many years 
in the past, only one Diocesan Missionary has been serving the 
three Fayetteville Mission Churches, we are placing there in 
July two men, one serving Christ Church, Hope Mills, and 
Good Shepherd Church, Tolar-Hart, and the other serving 
St. Philip's Church, Fayetteville, and working under the di- 
rection and with the Rev. Roscoe C. Hauser, Rector of St. 
John's Church. This could not possibly be done without the 
fine assistance of Mr. Hauser and the Vestry of St. John's. 
They have stepped forward in this venture in the most coop-

The Bishop's Address 

erative way, under the able leadership of Mr. Hauser and are 
contributing substantially to the salary of the new Minister. 
We should find in this set-up a new incentive for our Mission- 
ary work in Fayetteville and it is, in my opinion, sc wise and 
strategic move for the extension of the whole Church in this 
area. In this Address let me particularly express my appre- 
ciation to Mr. Hauser and his able and forward-looking Vestry. 

WORK WITH OUR ARMED FORCES 

Certainly a great opportunity for service in East Carolina 
at the present time is the Church's work with our Armed 
Forces. East Carolina has within its borders nine Armed 
Forces installations and we are told by our National Council 
that we have the largest Armed Forces work of any Diocese 
in the whole Church. I think of it as our "Newest Mission 
Field." And certainly a strategic and worthwhile time for 
Christian service to an ever increasing group of young men 
away from their home ties and in need of the Ministry of our 
Church during some of the most critical years of their life 
(more Episcopal young men are serving in the Armed Forces 
today than are in attendance in the colleges of our land) . 

To adequately serve these young men who come from all 
over the United States, our National Council is of inestimable 
assistance to us. Let me pay a tribute in this Address to the 
Rev. Alexander E. Livesay, Chairman of Armed Forces Com- 
mission. At the present time, a beautiful and adequate new 
Church is being, built in Jacksonville, where Camp Lejeune 
is located, with the help of a loan from the General Church 
of $50,000, without interest. Beginning almost immediately a 
new Parish House will be built in Havelock, where the Cherry 
Point Marine Base is located, with the help of a $10,000 grant 
from the General Church and a $10,000 loan, without in- 
terest. Half of this loan will be paid by St. Christopher's, 
Havelock, and it is hoped that the remaining $5,000 will be 
assumed by the Diocese, in ten equal installments, in our Dio- 
cesan budget. I commend this most earnestly to this Con- 
vention. 

THE GIFT OF A NUCLEAR REACTOR TO JAPAN 

One of the thrilling moments of our last General Con- 
vention was the time of the presentation of a Resolution urg- 
ing the gift of a Nuclear Reactor to St. Paul's University in 
Tokyo, Japan. Since that time the Church has set this in 
motion, commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the found- 
ing of the Japanese Church. A committee was appointed by the 
Presiding Bishop at its opening meeting on March 3, at which 
time it was decided to launch a short low-pressure campaign. 
The Rev. W. G. Pollard, Director of the Oak Ridge Institute 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 35 

The Bishop's Address 

of Nuclear Studies, is writing informational material which 
will be ready for distribution to the Clergy early in April. 
This can surely be one of the most productive missionary 
undertakings that the Church has ever faced. The Reactor 
is not for military use but it is essentially for teaching, re- 
search, and medical use. St. Paul's will be the first Japanese 
college to have a Reactor. St. Luke's Hospital, Tokyo, will 
also use this and benefit greatly from this. Although this is 
in no sense an instrument of our national governmental policy, 
the State Department in Washington has given its hearty ap- 
proval and is enthusiastic about our effort. It is, indeed, a 
free-will gift from the Episcopal Church, without strings of any 
kind, and a wonderful illustration of the "Atoms for Peace" 
undertaking. 

In this Diocese, I have asked Mr. Prime Osborn, a Com- 
municant of St. John's Church, Wilmington, to be Chairman 
of our Campaign. Sometime during this Convention I will ask 
Mr. Osborn to speak to us and let us know how, together, we 
can cooperate to make this great gift a venture for Christ in 
a true and sacrificial sense. 

GIFT OF THE REV. THOMAS PASTEUR NOE 

Since the meeting of our last Convention, the Rev. Thomas 
Pasteur Noe and his devoted wife entered into eternal life. At 
our Convention in Beaufort, Mr. Noe told of his intention to 
leave approximately $100,000 to The Episcopal Foundation in 
East Carolina, the income to be used for furthering the work 
of the Diocese. This sum is now in the process of being turned 
over to the Foundation and steps have been taken to carry out, 
in every detail, the requests of Mr. and Mrs. Noe. May God 
bless this devoted couple and may the Trust that they have 
set up be a constant Memorial to the Glory of God and in their 
loving memory. 

This gift represents the only large bequest that has ever 
been left to the Diocese of East Carolina. It was one of Mr. 
Noe's objectives that this gift "would inspire others to do 
likewise." You cannot imagine, my dear friends, how much 
could be done in this Diocese with an adequate endowment — 
to be used entirely for new work and for Church Extension. 
The purpose of this Foundation is to insure this endowment in 
the years ahead for the work of the Bishops of East Carolina 
who are to come. You have a most able Board of Trustees for 
our Foundation, headed by Mr. Will G. Gaither. Following this 
Convention, the semi-annual meeting will be held, as is our 
custom. Let me urge you to keep the Foundation before our 
people. Copies of the Foundation pamphlet are available at 
this Convention. If you are not familiar with it, please take 
a copy home from the rear of the Church. 



36 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

The Bishop's Address 

OUR DIOCESAN HOUSE 

I cannot refrain from mentioning in this Address the in- 
creasing use being made of our Diocesan House and the bene- 
ficial effect that it has on our whole Diocesan life and set-up. 
Many meetings are held there. Visiting Bishops from other 
Dioceses tell me that it is the most beautiful and useful "Dio- 
cesan House" that they have ever seen. 

Although we have expressed our gratitude in the past to 
those who have most graciously given us this most beautiful 
Church Center, I do not believe that the whole Diocese is aware 
of the fact that continuous renovation, repair, beautification 
of grounds, and constant improvements of the property is 
continually going on at no cost to the Diocese and through the 
generosity of Mrs. Walter Marvin, the former owner of the 
house and our very dear Diocesan friend and co-worker in this 
venture for our beloved Diocese. Literally thousands of dol- 
lars each year have been spent on the house by Mrs. Marvin. 
She has made it more and more useful and although she has 
no idea that I am making this statement today, I feel that 
the Diocese should know of her continuing generosity and her 
continuing devotion to a more and more effective Diocesan 
effort in the name of our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. Let 
me urge all of the members of this Convention to visit the 
Diocesan House, either sometime during these two days or 
directly after the Convention is over on Thursday afternoon. 

CHANGE IN STATUS OF OUR LAYMEN'S WORK 

The last meeting of our General Convention at Miami 
Beach voted a considerable change in the status of our Lay- 
men's Work throughout the country. It has long been felt 
in the Church that our Laymen's Work should not be con- 
sidered as a separate feature of the General Church program 
and, likewise, in a Diocese should not be considered apart from 
the regular program of the Diocese. The work of the Laymen 
is not the work of a Club (such as a Civic Club with its own 
particular objective and interests). The work of the Laymen 
of the Church is too large, encompassing and important for 
that. Their work is the work of the entire Church, Parish, and 
Diocese and should be considered in this setting. The work 
of the Laymen, as a group, should be to further the whole pro- 
gram of the Parish or Diocese and the total mission of the 
Church. 

In line with this, the General Church recommends that 
the Laymen's Work be considered a Department of the Execu- 
tive Council of each Diocese. In keeping with this, our Execu- 
tive Council at its last meeting set up the Laymen's work in 
this category. I appointed as the new Chairman of our De- 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 37 

The Bishop's Address 

partment of Laymen's work Mr. Robert J. Powell, Jr., the reg- 
ularly elected President of your Laymen's Association this past 
year. Mr. Powell is on the program of this Convention and 
will speak to us later today or tomorrow. 

INCREASES IN THE DIOCESAN BUDGET 

Let me commend wholeheartedly the increases that have 
been recommended by our Budget Committee for the year 1960. 

The increase in the amount for the Director of Christian 
Education has been placed there after the most careful study 
by our Department of Christian Education, extending over a 
year of meetings. The former amount for this office was 
deemed inadequate by every person whom they consulted. The 
increase recommended, we understand, is a minimum amount 
needed to make this new venture succeed. 

The increase in the budget for our Church in Havelock 
has already been commented upon and I earnestly recommend 
it to this Convention. 

The largest increase in the budget is the mathematical 
quota assigned us by the National Council for the year 1960 
and stands for our work for Christ all over the world. He said, 
"Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel." 

The budget of our General Church is not "so many dol- 
lars." It must be seen in the lives of men, women and children. 
On it depends whether people in Japan and Alaska, people 
in isolated towns in America, and people about us with many 
needs, will be brought into the warm fellowship of the Church 
and experience the love of God, the Father of our Lord Jesus 
Christ. In the new Program and Budget one sees widely en- 
larged opportunities for the Philippines (now our greatest 
overseas responsibility), for Central America, Colombia, the 
Canal Zone, Mexico, Taiwan, the Nippon Seikokwai, Brazil 
and Alaska, increased effectiveness of our Seminaries over- 
seas and the spread of our influence to Okinawa, Hong Kong, 
Singapore, India, and Pakistan, and the relevance and con- 
temporaneity of our new program in every area of our work 
at home. 

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY AND 
MRS. WILLIAM B. ROSEVEAR 

In just a few moments you will hear the address of Mrs. 
William B. Rosevear, the retiring President of the Woman's 
Auxiliary of East Carolina. I have waited until this time in 
my address to say this (I have saved the best until last) . There 
are many things that I could say about Mrs. Rosevear — her 
Consecrated able ability — her devotion to the cause of the 
Auxiliary and to her Diocese — her radiant and winsome per- 



38 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

The Bishop's Address 

sonality. She has been a constant source of inspiration and 
help to me. I can never remember calling upon her for any 
assistance of any kind that she has not gladly and willingly 
been eager to help. I wish to express, publicly, at this time my 
gratitude to Mrs. Rosevear and, through her, to the Auxiliary 
for the high standard that has been set by our Women of East 
Carolina. God bless them. 

This is, in no sense, a farewell to Mrs. Rosevear. We look 
forward to working with her constantly in the months and 
years to come. Such ability and talents cannot be lost. She 
is too young to be an "elder statesman" but she will be a con- 
tinuing Counsellor, advisor, and leader, I am sure, in all phases 
of our Diocesan life. 

CONCLUSION 

Let us move forward today to the high calling that is ours 
in Christ Jesus — seeking ever for the Diocese "those things 
that come from above." Never since the first century has the 
Christian religion been so subjected to vicious criticism and 
to vigorous opposition from forces that seek to destroy it. 
Its way of life is in direct opposition to Communism. The 
struggle for decency, for honesty, for the preservation of what 
we think of as the "soul of man" depends today, in the last 
analysis, upon the Christian Church. For the Church of 
Christ, in many ways, it is "later than we think." Many Christ- 
ians are unaware of this. Many are simply apathetic, willing 
to let the children of their friends in years to come carry 
the burden for their own children of tomorrow. Let us seek 
to do our part for a world and in a time which is momentous 
in the history of mankind. God will ask each of us some day 
— "Have you done your part?" It must be done within the 
confines of your Parish, yes, but more than this — it must be 
done in some measure for the world outside, if we are to win 
God's approval. I ask only this of you, finally, my people of 
East Carolina — that your vision may be widened — that it may 
grow each year — beyond the Parish — beyond the Diocese — 
to God's world, for whom Christ died and to whom you and 
I owe our allegiance, our love and our undying devotion. God 
help you and your Bishop to do a better and better job in that 
state of life into which God has called us. Amen.

The securities are kept in a safe deposit box at the Security Na- 
tional Bank, Wilmington, North Carolina, and were inspected by us on 
March 5, 1959. 

Funds on deposit with the Wachovia Bank and Trust Company 
were reconciled with the records of the depository. Other assets of 
the fund balance were brought forward from the previous statement 
without verification. 

As of December 31, 1958 the balance due on 2246 Camellia Drive 
to the Cooperative Savings and Loan Association, Wilmington, North 
Carolina, was $8,275.23. 

Since the scope of our examination was limited, in that we did 
not confirm the receipts by correspondence or other methods nor did 
we verify disbursements other than as stated above, we are unable to 
express an unqualified opinion as to the presentation of the Statement 
of Receipts and Disbursements for the year ended December 31, 1958 
and the Fund Balance as of that date.

TREASURER — BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

To the Bishop and the Seventy- Sixth Convention of the Diocese of

I present the following 1 Audit Report for the Board of Trustees 
for the year 1958. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBERT STRANGE, Treasurer. 

March 21. 1959 

The Board of Trustees 
Diocese of East Carolina 
Wilmington, North Carolina 

Gentlemen: 

Pursuant to a request by your Treasurer, Mr. Robert Strange, we 
have examined the books of the Trustees, Diocese of East Carolina 
for the year ended December 31, 1958 and submit herewith the results 
of such examination on the following exhibits and schedules: 
Recapitulation of Fund Balances, Income 

and Disbursements — Principal Exhibit "A" 

Recapitulation of Fund Balances, Income 

and Disbursements — Income Exhibit "B" 

Recapitulation of Changes in 

Principal Fund Balances Schedule #1 

Invested Funds Schedule #2 

Bank Reconciliation Schedule #3 

Schedules No. 1 and 3 are not printed in the Journal. 

COMMENTS — GENERAL 

Our examination embraced tracing receipts, as shown by the books, 
to the depositories. All disbursements were made from the depositories, 
The Wilmington Savings and Trust Company and The Wachovia Bank 
and Trust Company, Wilmington, North Carolina, and supported by 
cancelled vouchers. Income from stocks and bonds, itemized on Schedule 
#2, was verified, other income as reflected by the books was accepted 
as correct. Disbursements were accepted as correct and were not verified. 
Funds on deposit were reconciled with the records of the depository as 
of December 31, 1958. Stocks and bonds, held for safekeeping in safe 
deposit boxes at The Bank of Wilmington and The Security National 
Bank, Wilmington, North Carolina, were inspected by us on March 16, 
1959 and March 5, 1959 respectively. Other assets are shown as reflected 
by the books. 

During the years 1957 and 1958 $650.00 was collected and set up 
on the books of the Treasurer as a principal fund of J. M. Spruill ac- 
count. The examiner was informed that the collections resulted from 
the sale of property at Lake Phelps, North Carolina, which has been 
carried as part of the Rev. Edward M. Forbes Estate. The collections 
have been credited to the Rev. Edward M. Forbes Principal Account 
and the value of the real estate as carried in this account has been re- 
duced by $650.00. The examiner was informed that the sale had not 
been completed so consequently the transaction could not be reflected 
in this report. 

ACCOUNTANTS' STATEMENT 

Since our examination of the books was limited to the verification 
of income from the inspected stocks and bonds, and since the disburse-

Income and Disbursements for the year then ended.

THE BOARD OF PUBLICATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

We are grateful for the amount that the Convention last year placed 
in the Budget for 1959; however, the $2,000 in the Diocesan Budget for 
the Mission Herald covers less than half the cost of publishing the paper. 
We therefore shall continue to need contributions from the people of 
East Carolina, and whenever an envelope is inserted in The Mission 
Herald it is a sign that we are in need of help. 

With the contributions that we have received to date this year, and 
with the amount in the Budget for The Mission Herald, and with the 
income from advertisements (for which we wish to thank our friends for 
sending us) we have been able to operate in the black for the first time 
since I have been connected with the paper. 

Our present method of financing The Mission Herald with aid from 
the Diocese, the Woman's Auxiliary, advertisements and individual con- 
tributions is we believe the best method at this time of financing the 
paper. If the people of East Carolina will continue to send in their con- 
tributions, and if the amount that we receive from advertisements does 
not go down; then we believe that with what we receive from the Bud- 



60 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Department of Promotion 

get, that we shall continue to be able to publish the paper; we are 
therefore NOT asking any increase in the Diocesan Budget for 1960. 

However, we believe that with The Mission Herald becoming more 
and more the Promotion medium of this Diocese, that we should anti- 
cipate the time when the full cost of publishing the Diocesan paper can 
be included in the Budget of the Diocese; for if The Mission Herald is 
worth publishing we believe that the full cost of publishing the paper 
should eventually be an item in the Budget of this Diocese. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. HUME COX, 
Chairman. 



THE DEPARTMENT OF PROMOTION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The major effort of the Department of Promotion during the past 
year has been to advance the concept of proportionate giving based on 
gratitude. 

This effort has been in two areas. One relates to the training of 
Every Member Canvass leaders. The department sponsored a training 
meeting for the clergy and canvass chairmen at Camp Leach in Septem- 
ber, with 82 in attendance. It is encouraging to note that a growing 
number of our churches are subscribing to the principles of a non-budget 
type canvass based on spiritual giving. 

Parallel in importance to leader training is the presentation of our 
diocesan television program, which for the past two years has been 
scheduled in November, just preceding Canvass Sunday. The purpose 
of this program is threefold: (1) To review the activities of our church 
in diocese, country and world; (2) to emphasize the spiritual values of the 
Every Member Canvass; and (3) to portray the beliefs, strength, and 
evangelistic purpose of our faith to the non-churched. 

But the real yardstick of this department's effectiveness is the 
standard of giving. From all reports, we believe last year's canvass was 
most successful. Here are a few examples: Among our missions — St. 
Phillip's, Southport; increase of 170% St. John's and St. Mark's, Grifton, 
up 50%; Holy Innocents', Lenoir County, up 50%. Among our parishes: 
St. Stephen's, Goldsboro, up 33%; Advent, Williamston, up 25%; St. 
Mark's, Wilmington, up 20%; St. Peter's, Washington, up 10%. These 
figures demonstrate the tremendous potential that exists in our diocese 
for continued growth in spiritual giving. 

As Chairman, I wish to commend all canvass leaders, both lay and 
clerical, for outstanding work and cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 
L. W. ALLEN, 
Chairman. 



THE DEPARTMENT OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

To the BisKop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Department of Christian Education has met five times since 
the last convention. 

Our first concern has been to secure a Director of Christian Educa- 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 61 

Report — Department of Youth 

tion who is qualified to give the leadership needed in the educational pro- 
gram of our Diocese. We have made three definite attempts to secure 
a person for this work. Our experience and our conversations with lead- 
ers in both our National Department and in neighboring Dioceses make 
us increasingly convinced that the budget of our Department is not 
adequate and realistic. With our present budget, we feel helpless. In 
our opinion, we have no chance of getting a qualified Director; and if 
we cannot get a well trained and experienced person, it is better not to 
get one at all. The April Mission Herald carried a detailed account of 
our recommendation to the Diocese, and the Finance Committee has in- 
cluded our proposed $3,000 increase in their proposed budget for 1960. 

Our second most important concern has been for adequate leader- 
ship training in our Diocese. Under the leadership of the Rev. A. Heath 
Light, our Chairman of Leadership Training, we arranged with Bishop 
Wright to have a Diocesan conference for clergy and key lay persons 
in Christian Education at St. Paul's Church, Greenville, on March 11th. 
the Rev. Walton Davis, of the Leadership Training Division of our Nation- 
al Department was secured as leader. Approximately 22 clergymen and 44 
lay people attended. In trying to discover our needs in this Diocese, the 
strong and weak points in our educational programs were set forth. A 
widespread need for leadership training was expressed. Our Department 
feels that its role is primarily one of providing training for parish lead- 
ers in order that the persons thus trained can train others. Certainly 
it would be a hopelessly impossible task to attempt to train all the in- 
dividual teachers and leaders in every parish. To help provide this train- 
ing, our Department offers two possibilities: 1) Parish Life Conferences 
and 2) a Leadership Training Conference at Camp Leach (August 24- 
29). Definite plans will be made on the basis of the response made to 
Mr. Light's recent letter to all clergy of the Diocese. 

Other activities of the Department include an Episcopal Church 
Institute and Preaching Mission in the Grifton area under the leader- 
ship of the Rev. Daniel Allen, in which churches from Grifton, Ayden, 
Snow Hill, Farmville, Vanceboro and Chocowinity participated. Miss 
Carolyn Clapp, our Secretary, represented our Department at a Pro- 
vincial Meeting in Atlanta. 

Our work thus far has been to try to clarify our purpose and to 
plan strategy. We hope that in another year we may be able to report 
more definite accomplishments. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HENRY JOHNSTON, JR., 
Chairman. 



DEPARTMENT OF YOUTH 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

This year the young people of the Diocese have again assumed a 
very active role in the life of the Church under the leadership of their 
Youth Commission. The Chairman of this body, who has served so faith- 
fully this year, is Tommy Midyette from Christ Church, New Bern. 

The Mid-Winter Youth Rally conducted this year at St. Stephen's, 
Goldsboro, was received with great enthusiasm. Pre-meeting registration 
was so high that some of the larger delegations had to be limited in 
order for there to be ample room in the Parish House and Church to con- 
duct this meeting. Approximately 300 attended. Again there was a meet- 
ing for the Advisors and an interesting program was presented by Miss 
Carolyn Clapp from Greenville on Summer Work Projects for young 
people. Probably the largest single gift that the Young Churchmen have 



62 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Board of Managers — Camps and Conferences 

ever given was presented on the night of the banquet when the Presi- 
dent of the Youth Commission presented to the Reverend Stanleigh Jen- 
kins a gift of $1700.00. This was given for the building of another boys' 
cottage at Camp Leach and it was requested that this be a thank offer- 
ing for the splendid leadership and inspiration which Miss Hattie Harney 
of Elizabeth City has given and continues to give to our Young Church- 
men. The new cottage is to be officially named "Hattie's Hut." 

Plans are now being completed for the annual convention at Camp 
Leach and the Youth Commission has met to formulate the plans and 
preparation for an excellent convention. 

Again, as Youth Director, I feel that I can report that 3 new day 
has dawned amongst our youth. There is a definite indication of grow- 
ing enthusiasm and interest amongst our Young Chuichmer ss they go 
forward working, praying and giving for the spread of Christ's Kingdom. 

Respectfully submitted, 
CHARLES I. PENICK 
Director of Youth. 



BOARD OF MANAGERS, 
CAMPS AND CONFERENCES 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

This is my first report to you as chairman of Camps and Con- 
ference Commission Diocese of East Carolina. This has been a very 
happy appointment for the chairman, as our Diocese enjoys three 
separate facilities and a good tradition of Camp and Conference 
experience. The Bishop has wisely appointed excellent membership 
on our commission. Their names appear in the Journal. We have broken 
this group into three advisory bodies: for Camp Oceanside, the Rev. 
Messrs. Edwin E. Kirton, Daniel W. Allen, Clyde Beatty, Joseph H. 
Banks, Richard Horseley, Francis G. Johnson; Mrs. John Horton, Messrs. 
Wade Chestnut and Carlyle Mason. For Alice Hoffman Conference Cen- 
ter, the Rev. Messrs. E. Guthrie Brown, D. Raby Edwards, C. Edward 
Sharp, Messrs. C. R. Davant, W. I. Skinner, Robert J. Powell, Jr., Claude 
Wheatley and Frank Wooten. For Camp Leach, the Rev. Herbert C. 
Graveley, Stanleigh E. Jenkins, Wilfred T. Waterhouse, Mrs. Norman 
Winslow, Dr. Dave Tayloe and Mr. John Whalen. The chairman should 
like to express his commendation for the loyalty and enthusiasm of 
these groups in the operation of the three facilities. The commission 
met at Camp Leach on the 12th of September 1958 to hear reports for 
the summer of 1958 and assess a most successful season. 

Your commission would report the following observations. The per- 
sonnel of the several camps has been superior. There is marked gene- 
rosity of energy and interest by the clergy and lay people who served. 
There could be no adequate program of camping and Christian living 
without this essential. It can be said that the facilities are merely an 
adjunct to the people who use them. Camping is people. 

The capital facilities of Oceanside, Alice Hoffman Conference Cen- 
ter and Camp Leach need great improvement. The diocese will be con- 
structing this summer a permanent housing for Camp Oceanside. This 
will be in connection with the chapel already constructed there. Wade 
Chestnut and associates have been liberal in renting us their premises. 
Now we are able to have our own motel units for our campers. The 
Alice Hoffman Conference Center has the 2 motel units and the center 
with assembly bath house and kitchen. The most pressing need for the 
Conference Center is furnishings. The Laymen's Association has gained 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 63 

Report — Board of Managers — Camps and Conferences 

steel double decker cots and will furnish mattresses for the same. This 
should make the housing of the conference members more desirable. 
Camp Leach has completed and is using the new kitchen. This has ful- 
filled a long term need. Private gifts have been given to the retirement 
of the indebtedness on this new structure. It was used for the first time 
last summer. The Young Churchmen gave the camp a hi-fi amplifier 
and movie projector. This year they are presenting the camp with an- 
other boys' cabin. The scientific thinning of the trees has made a great 
improvement in the physical appearance of the camp. It would be rea- 
sonable to say that we have a head start on adequate camping facilities 
yet there is much to be done in capital improvement. Gifts from indi- 
viduals and church groups are most welcome for all of these sites. 

Christian Education is the goal for all our camping. The commission 
seeks to offer an experience in Christian living to all ages. It is our 
purpose to teach and to live the Christian faith in a Christian community 
at our camps and conferences. The Department of Christian Education 
is vitally concerned with our camping program and has the chairman as 
a member of the Department. An attempt is being made to develop a 
curriculum suitable for all who attend. 

The Camps and Conferences Commission is seeking to develop a 
sound fiscal policy for the operation of our facilities. We are committed 
to the attainment of a self supporting program and desire to effect this 
as soon as possible. We are attempting to retire all capital indebtedness 
thru private solicitation and maintain a pay as you go basis on our cur- 
rent operation. This has proven to be practical at Oceanside and Alice 
Hoffman. Camp Leach should be within its budget for this coming season. 
All income beyond current operation cost at Camp Leach will be placed 
in the fund for retirement of our capital indebtedness. Alice Hoffman 
Conference Center had a total income of $743 with an expenditure of 
$443.15 and presently enjoys a balance of $438.30. Camp Leach had a 
total income of nearly $16,000 in current items; the new kitchen cost 
$7,154.07 (capital item.) the indebtedness of $2,500 will be retired as soon 
as possible. Camp Leach has raised the cost of camp from $40 to $45. 
The cost at Alice Hoffman Conference Center is $1.50 per night for 
Episcopalians and $2.25 for non-Episcopalians. 

The maintenance of these several establishments is handled thru 
the advisory groups. The Rev. Mr. Kirton has been responsible for Camp 
Oceanside, Mr. C. R. Davant has done monumental work for Alice Hoff- 
man Conference Center, Mr. Hannis Brady is the caretaker at Camp 
Leach. Maintenance is always a sizable item and we are grateful for the 
quiet and necessary service rendered by these persons. 

Oceanside and Camp Leach offer a regular camping program to 
children of selected ages. This is according to established procedure 
which is well publicized. Alice Hoffman Conference Center is offered 
to church groups as a premise rather than an organized program. The 
camps carry health and accident insurance due to our liability. Alice 
Hoffman is used at the risk of the user. Legal agreement is signed by 
each licensee. We have been spared from any great catastrophe of life 
or property, for which we are very grateful. 

Your chairman is pleased to report that plans are formulated for 
this summer's operation in all three centers. Publicity concerning these 
programs is available in the Mission Herald and the publications of the 
different facilities. Your commission encourages the use of these by 
the diocesan family. 

Respectfully submitted, 

REV. JOHN W. DRAKE, JR., 
Chairman.

THE COMMITTEE ON 
STATUS OF PARISHES AND MISSIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your Committee has met with the Rectors and members of the 
Vestry or delegations from the following churches, studying their prob- 
lems and reviewing their progress: — 

1. St. Thomas', Windsor (the Rev. John Prior and members of the 
Vestry. At Goldsboro last year the Convention admitted St. Thomas', 
Windsor, to the status of a Full Parish with the understanding that they 
would provide the missions of Woodville, Roxobel and Avoca with 
services until this Convention. They now report that the services of a 
retired minister, the Rev. Frederick B. Drane, have been secured for 
Woodville and Roxobel and St. Thomas' desires to be relieved of all re- 
sponsibility for these two missions. They agree that they will continue to 
provide services for Avoca. Your Committee recommends this arrange- 
ment. 

2. St. Thomas', Ahoskie, (the Rev. John C. Owens and delegation). 
After functioning for one year as an Aided Parish, St. Thomas' was 
admitted to the Convention as a Full Parish at Goldsboro last year. 
They have doubled their communicants list in the past few years, estab- 
lished a Church School with an average attendance of 60 or more; they 
have built a Parish House and added a wing and now owe only about 
20% of the cost. 



66 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

The Episcopal Foundation 

3. St. Mark's and St. John's, Grifton, (the Rev. Herbert C. Grave- 
ly and members of the Vestry). 

Here is one of the most remarkable and unusual situations in our 
Diocese. St. John's is the mother church in the country and St. Mark's 
is the off-spring in the town of Grifton. Each functioning as separate 
congregations but having only one Vestry of twelve members — six 
from each congregation, they operate as a single unit with only one 
budget. They have no desire or intention of separating and operating 
as separate units. The town of Grifton is growing rapidly, due to the 
Du Pont plant being located nearby. Both churches are also growing 
rapidly and they are desirous of becoming a Full Parish, but St. James', 
Ayden is a part of their mission field and until some solution can 
be worked out for St. James', your Committee cannot recommend St. 
John's-St. Mark's be elevated to the status of a Full Parish. We are 
hopeful that some solution for St. James' can be worked out before the 
next Convention. 

4. Grace Church, Plymouth, (the Rev. John E. Taylor). 

This congregation is still hopeful of becoming a Full Parish at the 
Convention next year. The problem of St. Luke's, Roper — a part of their 
mission field — is a most difficult one. 

5. St. Paul's Vanceboro, and Trinity Church, Chocowinity, (the Rev. 
Richard Ottaway and members of the Vestry of each church). 

The delegation met jointly with our Committee. Each church was 
making application for elevation to status of Full Parish. After a lengthy 
and thorough discussion, your Committee felt that possibly St. Paul's, 
Vanceboro could function independently as a Full Parish but to separate 
them from Trinity, Chocowinity now — when, in our opinion, they are 
not quite ready for Full Parish status, would be most unfair to Trinity 
Church. Both churches are making outstanding progress and each has a 
well organized plan looking toward independence. It was mutually agreed 
by both Vestries, Mr. Ottaway and our Committee that they would con- 
tinue on their present programs for another year, giving all assistance 
possible to Trinity Church, and come back to the Convention next year 
for further consideration. Wonderful work is being done in this field 
and both churches are to be congratulated. 

6. St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea, Nags Head, (the Rev. Robert W. Turner 
III). 

Encouraged by their new building program and the promise of a 
committee of laymen from Elizabeth City to help with getting the 
summer residents in Na^'s Head more interested in St. Andrew's-by-the- 
Sea, Mr. Turner is very hopeful that perhaps by next Convention they 
can make application for a change to Aided Parish. They are making 
wonderful progress and are to be congratulated. 

Respectfully submitted, 
STANLEY WOODLAND, 
Chairman. 

THE EPISCOPAL FOUNDATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Episcopal Foundation was formed for the purpose of develop- 
ing and expanding the work of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese 
of East Carolina, under the direction of the Bishop, with the assistance 
of a board of directors composed of interested and devoted laymen. 
The By-Laws provide that the Bishop shall always be chairman of the 
board of directors, and the Chancellor of the Diocese shall be vice- 
chairman. We now record with profound sorrow the passing of our 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 67 

The Episcopal Foundation 

vice chairman, Mr. Junius Daniel Grimes, Sr., who served so faithfully in 
that capacity and work so untiringly in perfecting our organization. 
We are grateful for his assistance and wise counsel, which will be sorely 
missed. 

In appreciation of Mr. Grimes' loyal and devoted service to our 
Church, our Diocese and our Foundation, one of his friends has sent 
a cash contribution to the Foundation in his memory. 

At this time, we also record the passing of two others — benefactors 
of the Foundation and the Diocese — the Rev. Thomas Pasteur Noe and 
Mrs. Susan Price Noe, both of whom passed on to a larger life dur- 
ing recent months. 

At last year's convention, it was reported that Mr. and Mrs. Noe 
had completed a joint will, naming the Foundation as principal bene- 
ficiary. Now we wish to report that the home of these good people has 
been conveyed to the Foundation and that the securities mentioned in 
the will are now in the process of being transferred also. You might be 
interested to know that these securities valued at the time of death at 
$90,000.00, have a current market value of approximately $100,000.00. 
The will of Mr. and Mrs. Noe pointed out that their investments had 
proven sound over a period of years and it was their hope that they 
would, in general, be retained. 

The securities are therefore being placed in the hands of our cus- 
todian and the income will be available for the work of our church 
throughout the Diocese, as provided in the will. You may be sure that 
the provisions of the will will be carefully followed. 

We wish at this time to express our sincere thanks to Mr. Thomas 
P. Noe, Jr. and Mr. Julian M. Noe for their generosity and cooperation 
in all matters concerning the estate of their parents; especially for 
making possible the fee simple transfer of the home, instead of exer- 
cising the life right provision of the will; thereby greatly simplifying 
this situation. 

In accordance with the by-laws of the Foundation, the directors 
recently appointed a banking institution as custodian and depository. 
This institution has its home office, as well as a number of branch 
offices, located within the confines of our Diocese and has capital funds 
much larger than our by-laws specify. In addition it has a well man- 
aged trust department, all of which assures us of full and adequate 
protection for our funds and securities. 

Just recently we were advised of the death of Miss Lura Love and 
of the fact that her will provides that certain property in Columbus 
County be bequeathed to our Foundation. We are told that this prop- 
erty will not be transferred to us for several months and this will there- 
fore be referred to more fully in later reports. 

Looking to the future, we have assurance of the full cooperation 
of Mr. L. W. Allen, the Diocesan chairman of the Department of Pro- 
motion, in developing plans to keep our people reminded of this or- 
ganization, so those like Mrs. James Grist Staton, the Rev. and Mrs. 
Thomas Pasteur Noe and Miss Lura Love will remember the Founda- 
tion, in their wills before it is too late to do so; and also to acquaint 
you and others with the fact that, if you prefer, you can arrange for 
a gift of cash or securities now and enjoy the satisfaction, during your 
remaining years, of seeing the good work which our Bishop will be able 
to do in the many widely scattered areas of our Diocese. 

To you of the Clergy and Laity, we realize that many of you have 
pressing needs in your own parish and that such needs must necessarily 
come first; but there might be some among your faithful who would 
like to go beyond parish lines in their generosity. To such of these, may 
we ask that you suggest this Foundation, dedicated as it is to the 
teachings of Christ and to the spread of his kingdom in the Diocese 
of East Carolina. Respectfully submitted, 

W. G. GAITHER, 
President.

THE CHURCH PENSION FUND 

To the Bishop and the Seventy- Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your Chairman of the Church Pension Fund has received all in- 
formation and data pertaining to pension payment of Parishes and 
Missions. The Committee can report that Parish payments are in proper 
order and the Pension Program of the Diocese is in good standing. 

Information pertaining to retired clergymen and survivors has been 
received and in proper order, nine members of the clergy and thirteen 
survivors of clergy are enrolled on the Pension list. 

The Church Pension Fund and its affiliates continues to give to the 
church and clergy an effective answer to many problems. We recom- 
mend its continued use and study by clergy and vestry.

COLLEGE WORK COMMISSION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

College work is a missionary field on campus. This is for faculty 
and students alike. The major work in East Carolina is done in East 
Carolina College in Greenville. $900 is budgeted for the student worker 
at this college and $700 for discretionary fund. $900 is also budgeted as 
payment on the salary of the student chaplain of the University of 
North Carolina. Other college work in East Carolina includes the Rev. 
Clyde Beatty at Elizabeth City State College, Rev. Robert J. Snell 
at Flora Macdonald, Red Springs, and Wilmington College as done by 
several parishes in Wilmington. 

Mr. Howard Cutler, a senior from Zion Church, Washington, has 
served as student worker in Greenville for this year. He plans to at- 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 69 

The Good Shepherd Hospital 

tend seminary this fall. He has directed the Canterbury Club and its 
regular programs and activities. Drs. Frank Hoskins and James Poin- 
dexter have served as faculty advisors and the Rector of St. Paul's 
as clerical advisor. 

East Carolina was represented at the National Canterbury con- 
vention at Oberlin, Ohio, last fall. The Chairman was accompanied 
by Mr. Mac Berryhill, a senior from Charlotte., at this Triennial meeting 
of Canterbury and Young Churchmen. East Carolina students have also 
attended state Canterbury gatherings at Vade Mecum in Diocese of 
North Carolina. Students have conducted a regular program of study and 
service in the year's activity. Miss Vicki Eborn of Yeatsville, has served 
as President of the Canterbury Club, Mrs. Martha Gartman of New Bern, 
first vice-president, Clyde Matthews of Fort Royal, Virginia, second 
vice-president, Miss Janet Grisson of Roanoke Rapids, secretary, Sam 
Davis cl Martinsville, Virginia, as treasurer. 

Respectfully submitted, 
JOHN H. DRAKE, JR., 
Chairman. 



THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

I present to you the highlights of the Annual Report I made to the 
Board of Directors of Good Shepherd Hospital at its Annual Meeting 
in January. 

Today, I have the privilege to present to this Convention my 13th 
Annual report, which represents the hospital's 20th Anniversary. 

Our big news for 1958 was the accrediting of the hospital by the 
Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals for a period of three 
years. This means that Good Shepherd Hospital has met the standards 
set up by the Joint Commission to insure the quality of medical care 
in this hospital which the Joint Commission can faithfully recommend 
to the public. This should make us all feel proud that our hospital — 
The Good Shepherd — has been put in the same classification as all ap- 
proved hospitals throughout the United States. 

Our big project for 1958 was the construction of an Emergency 
Entrance Ramp and the changing of all entrance and exit doors accord- 
ing to specifications of the N. C. Fire Marshal. This project cost us 
approximately $8,000. 

With the ending of our fiscal year, December 31, 1958, we had 
37 employees on our payroll. During 1958, we took in receipts from all 
sources in the amount of $141,709.57, and disbursed in the amount of 
$141,348.97. Again, this year, we were not able to pay all our bills dur- 
ing the year. At the end of the year, we had a total of $4,050.84 out- 
standing bills payable. However, I would like to say — as of March 31, 
1959 — all of this deficit has been paid. Our deficit for the year of 1958 
can be traced to our use of the operating fund income for capital purposes. 

Clinical Report: 1) discharged, 1,888, 2) operating room, 471, 3) 
deaths, 85, 4) D.P.D. 2,154, 5) total days of care 9,517, 6) aver. pt. 30. 

During the year of 1958, we received from the Welfare Department 
$22,127.76. This money was used in treating welfare cases from Craven, 
Jones and Pamlico Counties. From the N. C. Blind Commission, the 
Medical Care and the Vocational Rehabilitation Commission we received 
$4,508.58. This money represented services rendered to indigent patients 
sponsored by the State of North Carolina. From the Kate B. Reynolds 



70 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

The Laymen of The Diocese of East Carolina 

Trust Fund we received $1,393.53, and from the Duke Endowment we 
received $2,782.00. 

The cost of hospitalization is continuing to increase from day to 
day. Last year our per diem cost for each patient was $13.10. This year 
our per diem cost increased to $14.41. 

The Woman's Auxiliary of East Carolina continued to support the 
Good Shepherd Hospital during- the year — both financially and with 
supplies. The U. T. 0. of the National Council gave $600.00 to help us 
purchase a Resuscitator during 1958. 

A student from Washington, North Carolina entered Community 
Hospital, Wilmington, North Carolina to pursue a 3 year nursing course 
— With Good Shepherd Hospital being the sponsor — through the cour- 
tesy of Bishop Wright and friends of the Church. 

In conclusion, may I say that during 1959, we cannot anticipate 
any big project because of the financial condition of the hospital. How- 
ever, we do hope to complete our Chapel, which is being sponsored by 
the Men's Group of Christ Episcopal Church and the Rev. Francis G. 
son of St. Cyprian's Church. We would also like to begin work on con- 
verting a room into a Recovery Room. 

Respectfully submitted, 
O. T. FAISON, 

Secretary-Treasurer. 



THE LAYMEN OF 
THE DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

In May of 1958, seven laymen of our diocese attended the Laymen's 
Training Session sponsored by the Presiding Bishops Committee on 
Laymen's work. These laymen included our District Chairmen with the 
exception of the New Bern District. Following this training session, 
most of our District Chairmen were successful in making visits to the 
clergy in their district and new keymen were appointed where necessary. 
We believe that the keyman is necessary to establish communications 
with the laymen of each parish. To substantiate the need for this com- 
munication seems necessary; therefore, we would briefly like to outline 
the basic purposes of the laymen's organization as set forth by the 
new Division of Laymen's Work of the National Council. 

1. To deepen the spiritual lives of men. 

2. To extend the impact of Christianity. 

3. To support the program of the church. 

4. To enlist the special skills and talents of men in the service of 
our Lord. 

To sum up these objects of the laymen for our own diocese, we would 
like to see two concepts of laymen's work. 

1. Make the laymen aware of their ministry to the world just as 
the clergy has a ministry to the congregation. See themselves as the 
players and the clergy as the leader, the teacher or the coach. 

2. Make an intelligent use of the lay manpower of the church. 

We seem to lack two factors to lend impetus to these objectives — 
active leadership and failure to remember our bounden duty as members 
of the Body of Christ: To follow Christ, to worship God every Sunday in 
His Church; and to work and pray and give for the spread of His King- 
dom. 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 71 

The Woman's Auxiliary 

With this in mind, we suggest the following: First — In much of our 
proposed laymen's work the players haven't consulted the coach; or the 
coach, or clergy if you please has been by-passed. Therefore, this May 
13th we are asking two clergy of our diocese to attend a special session 
of the Laymen's Training Session and to advise the clergy of the diocese 
at an early conference of the theme and object of this conference. Two 
laymen will attend the regular session May 15th and it will be their re- 
sponsibility to reproduce this session for the keymen of the diocese. 

Secondly — We propose a change in the laymen's organization in 
line with changes in the national organization, that the Diocese of East 
Carolina establish on the Executive Council a Department of Laity 
consisting of a Division of Laymen's Work and a Division of Women's 
Work, that further, the department be headed by a clergyman and the 
departments be headed by the now Chairman of the Laymen and the 
Chairman of the Woman's Auxiliary, that it will further be the re- 
sponsibility of the Chairman of the Department of Laity to coordinate 
and aid the Division Chairman in the intelligent use of the lay power 
of this diocese. 

I would hope that there would be an active participation by the 
laity in supporting the whole program of the church in the diocese and 
the world, with particular emphasis on Christian family life in the parish 
and the concerted effort to bring to parish status the mission churches 
of our diocese. 

We must become aware that we as laity are performing a ministry. 
No one knows as well as we ourselves how good or how poor our min- 
istry has been. Also, as laymen we cannot remain spectators and con- 
sider that we have an active participation in the spread of His King- 
dom. May our prayer be that we may rise above the world so that we 
may accept our duty actively following Christ — working, praying, giving, 
extending His Kingdom. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBERT J. POWELL, JR., 
Chairman. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

I bring to this 76th Convention of the Diocese greetings from the 
71st Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary. This year the theme 
of our Auxiliary Meeting is "One Family in Christ" — a theme that is 
particularly appropriate at this time when we find ourselves meeting 
together with representatives from all members of our diocesan family — 
the Clergy, the laymen, and the Woman's Auxiliary. Speaking for all 
the women present, let me say that we are very happy and honored 
to be here with you. 

Our theme, which I just mentioned, is the same as that used for the 
1958 Triennial Meeting. During the past year the women of this Diocese 
have made a concerted effort to live, to think, to serve God as "One 
Family in Christ." To accomplish this worship has more and more be- 
come the very core of our endeavors. Greater emphasis has been placed 
on the devotional part of our regular Auxiliary Meetings, around a 
hundred and fifty Corporate Communion Services have been held for our 
women, and the interest and participation in Bible Study and Prayer 
Groups continue to grow. 

Last June at Camp Leach, when we held a three day Retreat, our 
attendance was the largest it has been in many years. At this Retreat 



72 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

The Woman's Auxiliary 

our leader was Miss Estelle Carver, whose teachings have been able to 
transform the lives of so many by making the companionship of God 
the very mainspring of their day-by-day existence. This year it was 
the privilege of about two hundred women to attend one of the two 
Quiet Days held in Greenville on February 16th and in Kinston on Feb- 
ruary 17th, when the Rev. George B. Holmes, our very gifted leader, 
once more enriched our lives with this same sense of divine companion- 
ship. These are some of the ways our women have sought to worship 
our Heavenly Father, to acknowledge Him as the real head of our 
family, to know His love, and to ask His guidance as they seek to serve 
in His name. 

In the recent reports of the Woman's Auxiliary I discovered much 
evidence of this service both in deeds and in gifts. In 1958 the women 
gave a total of $69,418.38. Of this amount $12,446.14 was given in 
gratitude to God through our United Thank Offering. There may be 
some of you here who do not know that this offering helps provide the 
salaries of women missionaries, furnishes fhem wffch transportation 
and much needed supplies, helps to build, as well as to repair, hospitals, 
churches, training schools, colleges and student centers in domestic 
and foreign mission fields, and it also joins with the offerings of women 
of other communions to carry out the great commission of our Lord and 
Savior. 

To be of real service in the world a family must first put its own 
house in order. This thought must have been in the minds of the many 
Auxiliary women who during 1958 did so much to promote the mission 
of our Church in their own parishes, missions and in this Diocese. They 
worked with young people, acting as counsellors for the Young Church- 
men, and serving meals, or light refreshments, at their meetings. They 
sponsored or helped with Teenage Clubs, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, 
^oung Girls' Clubs, and gave scholarships to Camp Leach, St. Augus- 
tine's, and Kanuga. They assisted our Church Schools not only as teach- 
ers, but also by donating supplies and giving books to our Church School 
Libraries. Many Personnel Chairmen corresponded with college students, 
eighteen auxiliaries sent donations to the Canterbury Club room at St. 
Paul's in Greenville, and $400.00 was contributed toward the salary of 
our Student Worker at East Carolina College. Here is at least a sample 
of the things done for the youngest members of our diocesan family. 

There were numerous instances of needy families being helped by 
gifts of food, clothing and money, and others whose homes and pos- 
sessions were destroyed by fire being supplied with things ranging from 
baby shoes to furniture. Cash gifts were donated and sewing was done 
for the Cancer Clinic in Lumberton, local hospitals, and for the Good 
Shepherd Hospital in New Bern. 

Church and Parish House Building Funds have been boosted by 
cash gifts, the largest of these amounting to $1500.00. Repairs to 
churches and parish houses were financed, kneeling benches were cov- 
ered, prayer books purchased, new pews put in one church, choir vest- 
ments made, guild rooms and parish houses furnished, and a contribution 
made toward a new church organ. The Altar Guild has supplied altar 
linens for mission churches whenever the need was made known, and 
stands ready to help others along this line. Six auxiliaries included The 
Mission Herald in their budgets, and I sincerely hope that in the future 
other branches will follow their example. A number of auxiliaries ex- 
pressed their interest in mission work in this Diocese through gifts to one 
or more of the following: St. John's, Edenton; Galilee Mission, Cres- 
well; St. George's, Lake Landing; and St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea at Nags 
Head. Others contributed to the fund to build a new kitchen at Camp 
Leach, $200.00 was given to help with the salary of our Summer Director 
at the Alice Hoffman Conference Center, full expenses for the training 
of a nurse for Good Shepherd Hospital were paid, and $300.00 given to 
the Bishop's Educational Fund. 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 73 

The Woman's Auxiliary 

This is enough to give you an idea of how the women have sought 
to strengthen the Church at home in order to be able to reach out to do 
the same, both on a national and a world-wide scale. In addition to the 
United Thank Offering of almost 12% thousand, they have reached 
out through their communities by giving time and money to ten wel- 
fare organizations such as CARE, the Leper Fund, and the Red Cross. 
The Thompson Orphanage has received generous support through 
Christmas gifts for orphans and matrons, clothing allowances, gradua- 
tion gifts, government bonds, used clothing and cash amounting to over 
$4000.00. Among others assisted near at home were the TB Sanitorium, 
the State Hospital, Kanuga, Sewanee, Patterson School. Epiphany Mis- 
sion and St. Andrew's School in Tennessee, and Boys' Home in Coving- 
ton, Virginia. 

Our women have participated in the activities of the United Council 
of Church Women, and given their financial support. They have reached 
out to others through such organizations as KEEP, Church World Serv- 
ice, Save the Children Fund, the Braille Fund, Episcopal TV Founda- 
tion, and the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief. Through 
their prayers and generous gifts they have shown their interest in the 
following individual missionaries: the Rev. Robert Smith and the Rev. 
Harry Hansen in Japan, Sister Marjorie Raphael in Haiti, Miss Mil- 
dred Huff at San Juan Mission, New Mexico, Miss Jocelyn Gordon in 
India, and Miss Venetia Cox in Hong Kong. Used clothing, medicine, 
magazines, books, records, Bibles, prayer books and cash donations have 
been sent to mission fields in Japan, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Oki- 
nawa, Central America, and others. Food, clothing and education were 
supplied for one year for an orphan in Korea and for one in Hong Kong, 
and funds were sent to train one woman missionary in India. 

I have taken time for this rather detailed report in order to give you 
an overall picture of how the Woman's Auxiliary, beginning at home, 
has been able to reach around the world to touch the lives of so many, 
and to help bring them into our "One Family in Christ"; how it has been 
able to raise its sight beyond the walls of parochialism and catch a vision 
of the true mission of the Church. 

For the past two years my reports to the Woman's Auxiliary have 
dealt less with service accomplished and more with our aims and plans 
for the future. Today the fact that I am reporting to the Diocese as a 
whole has necessitated a departure from my usual course. However, I do 
have a few things to say about what lies ahead of us. From June 8th 
through the 10th we shall have a conference for the women of East 
Carolina at Camp Leach. Exciting plans have been made for this con- 
ference. Miss Estelle Carver, who returns to us as a result of the re- 
quests of those who were at Camp Leach last summer, will give a 
course on the Prayer Book. Although this announcement is enough 
to fill every cottage at Camp Leach, I want you to know of another 
bit of enticing news. Mrs. M. E. Nellums of Nashville, Tenn., our Pro- 
vincial Representative to the General Division of Women's Work of the 
National Council, will conduct a course designed especially for Episcopal 
Churchwomen. There are other plans for this Conference about which you 
will hear later. These days together will be educational, inspirational 
and just plain fun. Make your plans now to be there for the whole time. 

East Carolina women can look forward to many wonderful things 
in the near future, not least of which will be the prospect of having a 
new President, Mrs. Heman Clark, whose fruitful years of service as a 
diocesan officer assure us that we shall have an inspired and capable 
leader. It is a personal gratification to me to know that the work I have 
loved so much will be in the hands of one so dedicated to our Lord's 
work. From past experience I know that she will at all times be loyally 
supported by an Executive Board, each member of which not only gives 
unstintingly of her time, heart and mind to her particular department, 
but also is ever ready to help those in other departments. She will be 



74 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Board of Managers of Thompson Orphanage 

constantly encouraged by the continued cooperation and invaluable help 
of the clergy as well as the women of this Diocese. From our Bishop 
she will receive guidance from one of the great leaders in our Church 
today, and at the same time from one who always has concern and 
sound advice for the least of us who seek his help. May I say here that 
the small share I have had in working with Bishop Wright in this Dio- 
cese has been one of the highest privileges I have known, and one for 
which I shall ever be thankful. 

I find it hard to realize that my three years as president could 
have passed so quickly. The trust that was bestowed upon me during this 
time has been such a blessing to me I have been forced to doubt that 
old saying that "you get out of a job just what you put into it." Certainly 
I have received far more than I was ever able to give. I sincerely thank 
you for making such an experience possible for me. It has deepened my 
life spiritually and made me more than grateful to call myself a mem- 
ber of our "One Family in Christ." 

Respectfully submitted, 

GERTRUDE S. ROSEVEAR, 
President. 



BOARD OF MANAGERS OF 
THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

We continue to live under the misunderstanding that we are rich 
and do not need outside help. Nothing could be farther from the truth 
or more harmful to the operation of our program. Until our people accept 
facts and help to correct this misunderstanding, our program will con- 
tinue to lose some support. 

The source from which we draw our children continues on the down 
grade. This is due to social security, boarding homes and other improve- 
ments in our field of welfare. Much of the better "citizenship" group that 
used to be available for orphanage care do not come to us any more. They 
remain with relatives because social security money is an inducement 
and a relative will give help that used to be given by the orphanage. 

In 1958 our population was divided as follows: 11 full orphans, 
29 mother dead, 32 father dead, 13 both parents living, 46 boys and 
39 girls a total of 85. They were divided over the state by counties as 
follows: Alamance 3, Beaufort 4, Bertie 3, Caldwell 5, Chatham 1, Chero- 
kee 6, Craven 1, Durham 3, Edgecomb 5, Forsythe 2, Iredell 1, Lenoir 1, 
Mecklenburg 28, New Hanover 2, Vance 6, Rockingham 2, Rowan 2, 
Sampson 3, Wake 2, Wayne 4, Wilson 1. 

They are divided by Dioceses as follows: N. C. 55, E. N. C. 19, W. 
N. C. 11, Total 85. We have the usual things that occur in the rearing 
or training of children. Some do well, some not so good. By and large 
our children are accepted and lead the way when they are in competition 
with children in private homes. Their school work continues to be good. 
For the school year 1957-58 their grades were as follows: Those making 
all A's 10, B's 17, C's 28. Awards given for A, B, & C grades only. 
We have three boys in college. We had two girls to finish business 
school and are now employed. 

The results of our 1958 Thanksgiving Offering to date Jan. 29, 
1959 is as follows: Diocese of East Carolina $6,705.93; Diocese of 
North Carolina $19,650.94; Diocese of Western North Carolina $2,171.68; 
Special Offering $19.66; Total $28,548.39. I would like to encourage 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 75 

St. Mary's Junior College 

every church to work on their Thanksgiving Offering as this is our chief 
means of support. 

Our farm is the backbone of our training program and it continues 
to mean a great deal to us in that we get our food from the farm. The 
work that we do gives us a satisfaction of knowing that we are helping 
to help ourselves. In July, 1958 we moved into our new farm buildings. 
For the first time, our cows now have plenty of pasture and feed. As a 
result our production went up. For 1958 we produced the following: 
Milk 160,250 lbs. value $11,074.00; Eggs 344 cases value $3,844.90; Hay 
7,630 bales value $7,630.00; Meat, beef, hogs chickens value $3,277.30; 
Vegetables $2,954.25; Corn 2,000 bushels at $1.50 $3,000.00; Oats 2,000 
bushels at 85c $1,700.00; Total $33,480.45. Farm operation $26,231.80 
minus amount sold $9,799.49, difference $16,432.31, Total production 
$33,480.45 minus $26,231.80 equals $7,248.65 Gain. 

Our buildings were built in 1912-23-26. The plumbing, heating and 
general repairs are getting more each year. I am calling this to your 
attention because soon this will need to be replaced. 

Thompson Orphanage is well known over the state of North Caro- 
lina. Any success can be given to the men and women on our Boards who 
give so freely of their time and work so hard to see that a constructive 
program is carried out. I want to thank everyone who has contributed 
to the operation of Thompson Orphanage. 

Respectfully submitted, 
M. D. WHISNANT, 

Superintendent. 

ST. MARY'S JUNIOR COLLEGE 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The 117th annual session of St. Mary's began in September, 1958. 
During this long period of time there has not been an interruption to the 
busy schedule. In the early days the program was very general in na- 
ture. For many years, however, very definite academic goals have been 
held before students. Today St. Mary's holds a strong position in the 
field of education and is fulfilling the needs of an increasing number of 
students from our area. During the year 1958-59, which will soon be 
completed, notable strides have been taken toward improving the ex- 
cellence of the work done here. 

There were two faculty losses during the year and temporary ad- 
justments have been made. It is with great sorrow that we report the 
death of Miss Katharine Morris, who since 1945 has headed our Art 
Department. For several years Miss Morris has had less than a full 
schedule. To assist her Mrs. Ben Williams was brought to the campus. 
Mrs. Williams has now taken over the entire work of this department. 
Mrs. William Guess, who for several years has taught sociology, was 
forced to take a leave of absence this year for health reasons. Mrs. A. ~M. 
Fountain has replaced her on a temporary basis. 

The student body of 1958-59 is the largest that St. Mary's has ever 
had. This increase in students is a direct result of the opening of Penick 
Hall. Further increases, however, will not be made until expansion can 
take place in all campus facilities. 

More students are planning college work and more students are 
making application to St. Mary's each year. Pressures have been very 
great on our admission office because of the limited space available. 
We have taken into consideration several factors in admitting students 
for the 1959-60 session. Most important is the excellence of preparation 



76 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

St. Mary's Junior College 

of the candidate and their mental ability as evidenced by grades, stan- 
dardized tests, and school recommendations. Weight is also given to the 
date of application. If the student has a good record and applies early 
she receives more consideration than one who has the same type of 
background and applies late. 

More and more colleges require their applicants to take the College 
Entrance Examinations. This year a large number of candidates sub- 
mitted them to St. Mary's of their own choice. This helps to complete 
the registration picture. The faculty, after careful consideration, has 
approved of a policy which will require each applicant to take entrance 
examinations prior to admission. This new policy will go into effect with 
the 1960-61 session. 

During the summer of 1958 several important changes were made 
in the physical plant. These included reflooring in East Rock, made 
necessary by termite damage; enlargement of the President's office; 
and several changes and improvements in the President's home. As is 
customary a substantial amount of painting and freshening-up was in- 
cluded in the program. 

During the summer of 1959 additional work will be done on the 
buildings, and road repair work will be accomplished. A committee of 
the Board of Trustees is reviewing recommendations of an architect 
for changes in the library building. It is hoped that action can be taken 
in the next year to provide more shelf space and seating space for the 
library. This is one of the critical needs that will receive attention in 
the near future. A new library building would be a most worthwhile 
addition to the campus but this seems out of the question for financial 
reasons. The committee, therefore, is considering the renovation and 
expansion of the present library building. 

The college, under the direction of a faculty committee, is making 
a self-evaluation study this year. The committee has requested informa- 
tion from Trustees, faculty, alumnae and other people. The study we 
hope will be completed by the end of the academic year, and will be 
placed in the hands of the regional accrediting agency. The study was 
begun this year in line with a policy adopted by the Southern Asso- 
ciation for re-evaluation of all its members. St. Mary's volunteered to 
make the study in the first year of the plan. The Association will send 
to the campus a team of visitors next October to review the study and 
to make helpful suggestions. 

The financial problems faced by the college are still the most press- 
ing ones. Income is never adequate to meet the needs of the type of 
program that we want to provide. Increases in salaries for faculty and 
staff were made possible this year by increasing the general charge to 
the students. However, a larger proportion of the auxiliary money 
should be available for operating expenses as it is unwise to depend 
so completely on student fees. During the year 1957-58 the college re- 
ceived $13,504 from the owning dioceses and parishes included in these 
dioceses; $5,985.08 from the North Carolina Foundation of Church-Re- 
lated Colleges; and $6,646.84 in contributions from the alumnae Loyalty 
Fund. This represents only 6%. of the total annual budget. The portion 
of the budget income provided by the church represents only 3% of the 
total annual spending by the college in 1957-58. A larger participation 
by the owning church would make possible many things that cannot 
be done now, and would provide a sounder working budget. 

Respectfully submitted, 
RICHARD G. STONE. 



SEVENTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 77 

The Kanuga Board of Directors 

THE KANUGA BOARD OF DIRECTORS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Sixth Convention of the Diocese oi 
East Carolina: — 

At the annual meeting in October, 1958, the Board of Directors de- 
cided that they had better go to work instead of meeting once a year 
to listen to, and applaud, the report of our able and versatile Business 
Manager. 

We are glad to report that Wallis S. Goodman started work Febru- 
ary first as assistant to Willard P. Verduin. Mr. Goodman's particular 
field will be the selecting of our volunteer working staff and supervision 
of them during the summer. In the winter months, he will be able to 
give much time to publicity and promotion — a hither-to sadly neglected 
field. 

The next move of the Board was to authorize its Chairman, the 
Right Rev. C. Alfred Cole, to divide us into working committees as 
follows: — 

1. The Promotion and Publicity Committee under the chairmanship of 
the Rev. L. Bartine Sherman. 

2. The Program Committee directed by the Rev. Edwin B. Jeffress, Jr. 
has considered its job of evaluating the various conferences, of plan- 
ning future conferences to meet more adequately the needs ,of the 
Church, and to develop closer coordination with the various diocesan 
camps. They have chosen as their immediate task an exhaustive 
evaluation of the Adult Conference. 

The other teen-age and adult conferences are often filled to ca- 
pacity with waiting lists on some. The Family Conference has proved 
so popular that we are having two of them this year — one late in June 
and the other late in July. Small conferences to fill special needs 
can usually be added to our schedule. 

3. The Personnel Committee under Bishop Cole will have the responsi- 
bility of planning for and securing Director-.; of Conferences and all 
teaching staff from 1960 on. 

4. The Finance Committee, headed by Mr. H. P. Duvall, found upon ex- 
amination of the records that for the past three years our operating 
income has been sufficient to meet our operating expenses. This 
meant that all gifts, support from the Women of the Church, from 
parishes, could be used for debt retirement, major improvements, new 
buildings, etc. We are "in the black" at the moment, but there are 
many pressing needs that must be provided for in the near future. 
The Recreation Hall at the camp and the new kitchen wing being 
completed this winter are being built in part on anticipated income. 
This committee decided, therefore, that its first job should be long 
range planning both of capital needs, and of sources of income, and 
preliminary work has been done thereon. 

5. The Property Committee under the chairmanship of the Rev. John 
A. Pinckney will undertake long range planning for the development 
of the present facilities and for the addition of such facilities as 
will be needed to meet new needs and opportunities. Two major 
projects are being done this year. 

A much needed, spacious recreation building for the camp is al- 
most complete. This building will make rainy days more useful — and 
much more attractive — to the campers. 

And the generosity of a benefactor has made possible this year 
the first major move in replacing our administration building with a 
fireproof and more efficient structure. The old kitchen wing of the 
old Inn is a thing of the past — its dry rot and termites mourned by 



78 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

The Kanuga Board of Directors 

none. Construction on the new kitchen is right on schedule, and this 

wing will be ready for use this summer. 
The Kanuga Board (composed of the Bishop, a priest, a layman and 
a laywoman from each of the five owning dioceses) is now a working 
Board, meeting in these five committees, to which have been added as- 
sociate members. They are working together on immediate and long 
range plans to make Kanuga a place where you can strengthen your 
faith and devotions, find help in your work for your Church, experience 
a wider fellowship with other Christians, develop a broader viewpoint 
on religious matters, and return with a deep desire to share that which 
you have gained. 

Respectfully submitted, 
WILLARD P. VERDUIN, 
General Manager.

Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

The Bishop's Address 

Brethren of the Clergy and Laity : 

"Grace be unto you and Peace from our God our Father 
and the Lord Jesus Christ." 

I welcome you today to the Seventy-Seventh Annual Con- 
vention of the Diocese of East Carolina and the 15th over 
which I have had the privilege of presiding. 

We are meeting today in historic St. Paul's Church in 
Greenville, a church that has a history of useful and effective 
service for the past 122 years. The first building of an Epis- 
copal Church in Greenville was small and unpretentious, 
erected on Pitt Street by Nymphus A. Price with the aid of 
two carpenters in the year 1838. This little wooden church 
was gradually equipped. Household chairs were used in the 
chancel ; a small cut glass fruit stand served for the font ; oil 
lamps furnished the light and a melodeon, lent by one of the 
parishioners, gave out the accompaniment to the hymns. 

In 1846 St. Paul's was admitted as a parish in the Diocese 
of North Carolina, and extended a call to its first Rector, the 
Rev. N. Collin Hughes. The parish was recognized at the 
Convention of the Diocese which was held May 7, 1847. 

The original little church building was used until 1885, 
when it was then sold to the Roman Catholic Church and moved 
to another location and another church building was erected by 
St. Paul's congregation. 

As the years wore on, the need for a larger church was felt 
more and more. Plans were finally formulated, and in 1930, 
the church on East Fourth Street near East Carolina College, 
the church in which we are now worshipping, was completed. 
At the same time, a parish house was constructed. 

Through the years, St. Paul's has been served by many 
devoted and consecrated Rectors. In 1956, the Rev. John W. 
Drake came as Rector. The church has grown and developed 
under his able and devoted leadership. Under his direction, 
in 1958, a new addition was added to the parish house to make 
it one of the best equipped educational buildings in the entire 
Diocese, a center known as "Friendly Hall" was furnished by 
the Diocese, for work among the students of East Carolina 
College. 

In 1959, the Rev. Richard N. Ottaway came to St. Paul's 
as College Chaplain. These two able Priests make a splendid 
team in this strategic community and the work going on here 
is in every way an inspiration to the Diocese. 

The Diocesan Convention has met twice before in this 
parish. In 1931, I was present here for the Convention attend- 
ing my first Church Convention (my first year in the minis- 

25 



The Bishop's Address 

try) . Again in 1943, the Convention of the Diocese met in St. 
Paul's, Greenville. This year, the Convention of 1960 meets 
here. We are again happy to be in this church, that has come 
to mean so much in the life and history of East Carolina. 

MRS. WALKER TAYLOR 

On April 23rd, Mrs. Walker Taylor (of Wilmington) pass- 
ed into God's Eternal hands. Few women have ever meant as 
much to this Diocese as did Fannie Grainger Taylor. In the 
past fifteen years since I have been Bishop, she has held many 
offices — President of the Diocesan Woman's Auxiliary, a mem- 
ber of the Executive Board of the Diocese, a member of the 
Finance Committee of the Diocese, and Chairman of the Dio- 
cesan House Committee. In her own church, St. James', she 
was a member of the Vestry at the time of her death. Al- 
though a most active community worker, she loved her Church 
above all and her first efforts were always for her Church and 
her Diocese. She will be greatly missed in East Carolina. To 
her husband and family, we extend our deepest sympathy. 
We know that she has gone from strength to strength in God's 
life of Great Service. May God bless her always. 

CLERGY CHANGES IN THE DIOCESE 

Since the last meeting of our Convention, the following 
new men have been added to our Diocesan Clergy family : 
(1) The Rev. Manney Reid, formerly of the Diocese of South 
Carolina, is now Rector of St. Mary's Church, Kinston; (2) 
the Rev. Thomas S. Clarkson, formerly of the Diocese of Vir- 
ginia is now Priest-in-Charge of St. Philip's, Southport, St. 
Mary's, Burgaw, St. Thomas', Atkinson and All Souls', North- 
west; (3) the Rev. Angus Miller formerly of the Diocese of 
Northwest Texas is now Priest-in-Charge of St. James', Bel- 
haven ; (4) the Rev. Joseph P. Burroughs formerly of the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina is now Priest-in-Charge of St. Andrew's- 
by-the-Sea, Nags Head; (5) the Rev. Conway D. Thornburg 
who graduated from the Virginia Seminary last June is now 
Priest-in-Charge of Christ Church, Hope Mills and Good Shep- 
herd Church, Tolar-Hart; (6) the Rev. Wallace I. Wolverton, 
Jr., who graduated last June from Church Divinity School of 
the Pacific, is now Associate Rector of St. John's, Fayetteville, 
and working toward the establishment of a new mission in 
Fayetteville. 

Graduating the last of this month from Virginia Seminary, 
Richard Baker, Jr. will become Deacon-in-Charge of St. 
Thomas', Ahoskie ; I. Mayo Little will become Assistant Rector 
of St. James', Wilmington and Nelson Hodgkins will become 
Deacon-in-Charge of Grace Church, Whiteville. 

We most heartily welcome these additions to our fellow- 

26 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

ship of East Carolina clergy and later in this meeting, I shall 
introduce those who are present to this Convention. 

During the past year, the following men have been given 
Letters Dimissory: The Rev. John Owens to the Diocese of 
Virginia ; the Rev. Hume Cox to the Diocese of Southern Vir- 
ginia; the Rev. Herbert Gravely to the Diocese of South Caro- 
lina; the Rev. Richard Horsley to the Diocese of West Vir- 
ginia, and the Rev. Robert Turner to England where he is 
working with the evangelistic team of the Rev. Canon Bryan 
Greene. 

The following clergy have moved their residence within 
the Diocese as follows: the Rev. Edwin F. Moseley to Holy 
Trinity, Hertford; the Rev. Samuel M. Black to St. Paul's, 
Vanceboro and Trinity Church, Chocowinity; the Rev. John 
Broome to Emmanuel Church, Farmville; the Rev. B. Wood 
Gaither to Holy Innocents', Lenoir County and Grace Church, 
Trenton ; the Rev. Francis Johnson to St. Joseph's Church, Fay- 
etteville and the Rev. Richard Ottaway to become student 
rector and assistant to the Rev. John Drake in St. Paul's, 
Greenville. 

CONFIRMATIONS IN THE DIOCESE 

I am happy to report that again this year our Confirma- 
tions in the Diocese have far exceeded the number of any previ- 
ous year. Some few years ago, we were trying to have our 
Confirmation total go over the five hundred mark. We suc- 
ceeded in doing this last year when we reported 561 persons 
had been Confirmed. This year we are now reporting 594 
persons which represents a substantial gain. We are truly 
"on the march" with our Confirmation gains and let us set our 
goal now at one thousand. 

Let me again emphasize, as I have in the past few years, 
that a Church must think in terms of confirming at least 8% 
of its communicant strength each year, with one-half of these 
being adults, or that church is not actually increasing in size, 
but either standing still or going backward in communicant 
strength. Let me in this address sincerely congratulate the 
clergy who have produced large confirmation classes the past 
year and say to them how gratifying this progress is to the 
whole Diocese. 

OUR DIOCESAN DEPARTMENTS 

Although I do not usually comment on the Departments 
of the Diocese in my address — this past year has been marked, 
I feel by unusual growth in the effectiveness and development 
of our Diocesan Departments. 

The Department of Christian Education under the leader- 
ship of its Chairman, the Rev. Henry Johnston, Jr. has de- 

27 



The Bishop's Address 

veloped into one of the finest I feel in the whole Church. 
During the past year, and made possible by the Convention 
of last year, Miss Maude Cutler came as Diocesan Director 
of Christian Education. Already her fine spirit, consecration 
and ability have been felt all over the Diocese, and if I should 
be asked to single out anyone thing, denoting our progress 
I would say without hesitation, it was "the coming of Miss 
Maude Cutler." 

Our Camps and Conferences Department under the Chair- 
manship of the Rev. John Drake has raised this area of our 
Diocesan work to a new high level. Camp Leach under the 
direction of the Rev. Stanleigh Jenkins, Camp Oceanside un- 
der the direction of the Rev. Edwin E. Kirton, and the Alice 
Hoffman Center under the direction of the Rev. Lemuel Rob- 
erson are meeting the needs of a large number of our children, 
adults and clergy and the Diocese is proud of this program. 

The Armed Forces Commission of the Diocese under the 
able leadership of the Rev. Alexander Livesay is rendering 
an invaluable service to the many young men stationed in the 
armed forces installations of East Carolina. I am happy to re- 
port the gift this past week from the National Council of 
$12,000 to St. Anne's Church, Jacksonville, for the construc- 
tion of a new wing on their church school. This is an outright 
gift and comes largely to us as the result of the fine work 
being done by the Rev. Alexander Livesay with the military 
of Camp LeJeune. 

The Department of Mission under the Chairmanship of the 
Rev. C. Edward Sharp is the most effective, I believe, we have 
ever had. Regular meetings have been held of this department 
and constant evaluation goes on of our mission churches. 

The Department of Promotion under the direction of the 
Rev. Charles I. Penick has moved out from a consideration of 
only the Every Member Canvass to the YEAR 'ROUND JOB 
of promoting the total work of our Church. 

The Department of Youth under the direction of the Rev. 
A. Heath Light has brought our youth work to a high level 
of interest and enthusiasm. 

Our Department of Evangelism under the direction of the 
Rev. George B. Holmes is moving into new evangelistic empha- 
sis and you will be hearing more about this later in this Con- 
vention. 

Let me commend most heartily the work of all our Depart- 
ments for the unusually fine job that has been done since our 
last Convention. 

THE ALSTON BEQUEST 

From the estate of Dr. Louis Watson Alston who died 
on January 18, 1960 and his wife, Charlotte Niven Alston, who 

28 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

died April 25, 1955, the Diocese of East Carolina will receive 
the largest bequest ever to be left to the Diocese. Deeply in- 
terested in the work of their church, particularly in the state 
of North Carolina, this devoted couple left approximately 
$800,000 to the Diocese of East Carolina, the income from 
which is to be used for theological education, religious work 
among college students, and to supplement the salaries of lower 
paid clergy. 

Dr. Alston was born in Warrenton, N. C„ where his father, 
Philip G. Alston, had extensive land holdings. His mother died 
when he was nine years old. Some years later his father moved 
to Atlanta, Ga. and there Dr. Alston received a degree in dental 
surgery. He started a practice of dental surgery at Camden. 
In 1913 he met and maried Miss Charlotte Niven. 

The Alstons lived in Savannah, Ga. and later Morganton, 
N. C. and finally moved to Baltimore, Md. where they remained 
until their deaths. 

In memory of his wife, in 1955 Dr. Alston gave a massive 
40' "Easter Window" to their parish church, Cathedral Church 
of the Incarnation in Baltimore. All of their lives they had 
been devoted church members deeply interested in the work 
of the Episcopal Church. 

Dr. Alston and his wife have given to us in East Carolina 
a living memorial which will be with us always. In the words 
of our own Episcopal Foundation Booklet — "In the truest 
sense you prepare a message to the future when you write 
your will. The bequests you make are a reflection of the 
philosophy that guides your life, as well as your proclamation 
that death will not end your service to mankind." 

THE EPISCOPAL FOUNDATION 

At a later time in the Convention, a report will be made by 
Mr. Will G. Gaither, President of the Episcopal Foundation 
of the Diocese of East Carolina. Although the Alston gift has 
not yet been received by the Diocese, the addition of this won- 
derful bequest and of the Noe-Price Memorial, added to other 
smaller trust funds which have been given the Diocese, will 
increase the funds of our Episcopal Foundation to something, 
which I believe will be slightly over $1,000,000 in endow- 
ment. 

Those of us who are deeply interested in the Foundation 
believe that many things can be done in the future, which have 
not been financially possible in the past. I am sure that this 
Convention will eagerly await the report of our President, Mr. 
Gaither. 

Let me add one word in all sincerity, the income from the 
Foundation should, in my opinion, always be seen in terms of 
future growth for the Diocese, and not in any sense be thought 

29 



The Bishop's Address 

of as a possibility of relinquishing our "forward looking pro- 
gram of Stewardship," either in terms of the Diocese itself, 
OR OF OUR INDIVIDUAL CHURCHES. 

Let me commend most heartily the Leaders and Officers 
of our Foundation in East Carolina and express at this time, 
I am sure, the appreciation of the whole Diocese. 

COMMITTEE ON STUDY OF DIOCESAN STRUCTURE 

Thinking in terms of the growth of the Diocese and also 
the new avenues for service, growth and development, which 
can be opened up through income from the Episcopal Founda- 
tion in the years to come, I am appointing at this time, a com- 
mittee to study the structure of the Diocese in regard to our 
present organizational set-up. I feel that this committee could 
carefully examine our present structure and explore avenues 
for growth in the years that lie ahead. The possibility for ex- 
ample, of a Bishop Coadjutor or a Bishop Suffragan could be 
examined. All of this should be considered objectively and 
without sentiment, and with only one object in mine — namely, 
the best interest of East Carolina in the years that lie ahead 
and the type of organization that would make for the greatest 
growth and development of the Diocese in the name of our 
Lord Jesus Christ. 

In appointing this committee, let me state that no mem- 
ber has been approached ahead of time. None of them know 
that I plan to appoint them in this address. I earnestly hope 
however, that all of these gentlemen will be willing to serve 
on what I consider a most strategic committee at a most stra- 
tegic time in the life of our Diocese. I would like to appoint 
this Committee as follows: Chairman, Peter B. Ruff in of Wil- 
mington; the Rev. Henry Johnston of Fayetteville ; the Rev. 
Charles I. Penick of Goldsboro; the Rev. A. Heath Light of 
Elizabeth City ; Dr. Sidney Christian of Williamston ; Mr. Hey- 
wood Weeks of Kinston and Mr. Fitzhugh Duncan of Green- 
ville. 

COMMITTEE ON STUDY OF DIOCESAN BOUNDARIES 

Again it would seem wise at this time to pursue a study 
of the boundaries of the Episcopal Church within the State 
of North Carolina. The Unit of Research of the National 
Council has offered to be of assistance with such a study. It 
would be my hope that a Committee from the Diocese of East 
Carolina could meet with a similar committee from the Diocese 
of North Carolina and one from the Diocese of Western North 
Carolina and that these three committees acting, as one large 
joint committee could study the whole question of our Dio- 
cesan boundaries in an effective fashion with only one thought 
in mind— namely, THE BEST INTEREST OF THE EPISCO- 

30 



Seventy-Seventli Annual Convention 

PAL CHURCH IN THE WHOLE STATE OF NORTH CARO- 
LINA — that which would make for its growth, usefulness and 
effectiveness. This study, if it is made, should be thought of 
in terms of a statesman-like venture for the Episcopal Church 
and should be considered objectively, earnestly and sincerely. 
Two proposals have been made in the past — (1) one concerned 
with the retention of the three Dioceses in the state and a 
realignment in some cases of Diocesan boundary lines. (2) the 
other concerned with a proposal for two Dioceses in the state 
— each Diocese possibly having two Bishops (a Bishop and a 
Bishop Coadjutor). In this case, the state would probably be 
divided East and West at about the area of Chapel Hill with 
one fully self contained strong Diocese in the East and another 
in the West. 

To study this question, I am now appointing a committee 
and asking the Diocese of North Carolina and the Diocese of 
Western North Carolina to do likewise. 

Again, the persons whom I am now appointing to serve do 
not know they have been selected for this committee. I earn- 
estly hope they will be willing to help with this and will sense 
the importance of this undertaking for the Church. On this 
Committee I am asking our able Chancellor, the Honorable 
John W. Graham to serve as Chairman; the other members 
as follows: the Rev. Hunley Elebash of Wilmington, the Rev. 
C. Edward Sharp of Beaufort, the Rev. John Drake of Green- 
ville, the Rev. John Ormond of Williamston, Mr. Will G. 
Gaither of Elizabeth City, Mr. Hugh Dortch of Goldsboro and 
Mr. Henry Anderson of Fayetteville. 

RECTORIES FOR LARGER CHURCHES 

It has come to my attention that many churches in cities 
and larger towns are now adopting a policy of NOT OWNING 
RECTORIES, but RENTING THEM FOR EACH SUCCES- 
SIVE RECTOR. This policy enables the church to always 
adapt the rectory to the size of the clergyman's family and 
in other ways, to make the rectory more adaptable to each 
different rector. I COMMEND THIS POLICY TO CHURCHES 
IN OUR DIOCESE, that are located in larger towns and where 
the rectory problem has become increasingly A DIFFICULT 
ONE. 

CONCLUSION 

I cannot close this Convention Address without lifting it 
briefly from the routine of our Diocesan life and work to the 
wide expanse of God's troubled world and the world scene that 
faces us this May month of this year, 1960. 

The world is approaching the summit meeting of our 
world leaders. The prospects of success, particularly since 

31 



The Bishop's Address 

the plane incident of the past few days, look dim and distant 
indeed. The possibilities of unlimited world destruction, either 
deliberate or through error, so the experts tell us, are very 
great. 

What can we as Christians do? More to the point — What 
can we as Christians living in this little section of North Caro- 
lina with no great world influence, do? 

First, we can pray. We can pray as Christians through 
the centuries have prayed in times of need, with penitence 
and humility (because we in America are all involved in some 
way or another in the tragedy of these days). Let us add 
our prayers daily to those sincere Christians everywhere for 
some new sign of peace such as we do not see today in God's 
troubled and fearful humanity. 

But Peace is always bound up with justice, understanding 
and the need of God's people. How can we speak clearly about 
peace to three-quarters of the people of the world who are 
illiterate — who cannot read or write their own names. How 
can we speak clearly to three-quarters who never have enough 
to eat, whose little children always go to bed hungry. How 
can we speak peace to those who feel that we have gross mis- 
takes in human rights and inequalities in our own land. 

And let there be no mistake about it, religion is concerned 
with all of these things. The sincere Christian, for example, 
as a Christian, should be far more interested in world peace 
than the United Nations could ever be interested. The sincere 
Christian, for example, should be far more interested in ra- 
cial justice in the world than the Federal Government could 
ever be interested. The sincere Christian, for example, should 
be far more interested in winning the intellectual battle over 
Communism than any democracy could ever be interested. 
Let us never think we can divorce Christianity from the cli- 
mate of the world in which it lives. 

It is true that there have been those in every generation 
who have said that the Church should not be concerned with 
these things — that these things are in the political realm and 
that religion is in another. "Back to the old Gospel," they say, 
"The quiet comfortable Gospel of Christ." But this is the old 
Gospel and it is neither quiet or comfortable — it is hard and 
as real and as rugged as a man who died on a rugged cross. 

What I am trying to say is that my fear for many of my 
friends in the Diocese is that they do not see today the im- 
plications of their Christian Faith in the world about them. 
Many of our problems cannot be solved easily. They will 
take time. But at least the Christian can understand THE 
IMPLICATIONS OF HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH and can seek 
earnestly to work toward a Christian solution. Unless he does 

32 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

that — sets his face in the right direction, I am sure he is un- 
worthy of the trust of his Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. 

My hope is that many of us, who do not seem to have done 
so will begin to think carefully about the implications of their 
Christian faith in terms of the issues that confront us today. 
Remember that none of them can be divorced from the larger 
world picture and let us pray earnestly that God will give his 
world another chance — that our children and our children's 
children may have an opportunity to make of this world some- 
thing that resembles more clearly the Kingdom of God. 

Our world has become a great neighborhood with our mod- 
ern means of transportation and communication. Some of you 
know that I am travelling through the Orient this summer, 
visiting nine countries for our Overseas Missions Department. 
When I saw my itinerary the other day, I was amazed to see 
that on the first day of my trip, I would eat breakfast with 
my family in Wilmington and would eat supper with Bishop 
Gordon that night in Anchorage, Alaska, travelling by jet 
plane. Our world truly has become a great neighborhood, but 
we have not yet made of it a brotherhood. I am told that 
when the last war was declared, the British Minister of War 
turned to his secretary and asked how long it would take to 
get a message off to every British subject. The secretary 
said twenty minutes, sir. Twenty minutes to get a message 
of war around the world and yet two thousand years have 
passed and the world has yet to hear of the Prince of Peace. 

Yes, to hear of the Prince of Peace — that is our job as 
Christians — that is our task — in some way as God has called 
us in East Carolina.

Trustees Treasurer's Report 

TREASURER - BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

To the Bishop and the Seventy- Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

I present the following Audit Report for the Board of Trustees for 
the year 1959. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBERT STRANGE, Treasurer. 

The Board of Trustees 
Diocese of East Carolina 
Wilmington, North Carolina 
Gentlemen: 

Pursuant to a request by your Treasurer, Mr. Robert Strange, we 
have examined the books of the Trustees, Diocese of East Carolina for 
the year ended December 31, 1959 and submit herewith the results of 
such examination on the following exhibits and schedules-: 
Recapitulation of Fund Balances, Income 

and Disbursements — Principal Exhibit "A" 

Recapitulation of Fund Balances, Income 

and Disbursements — Income Exhibit "B" 

Recapitulation of Changes in 

Principal Fund Balances Schedule #1 

Invested Funds Schedule #2 

Bank Reconciliation Schedule #3 

(Schedules No. 1 and 3 are not printed in the Journal) 

COMMENTS — GENERAL 

Our examination embraced tracing receipts, as shown by the books, 
to the depository. All disbursements were made from the depository, 
the Wachovia Bank and Trust Company, Wilmington, North Carolina, 
and supported by cancelled vouchers. Income from stocks and bonds, 
itemized on Schedule #2, was verified, other income as reflected 
by the books was accepted as correct. Disbursements were accepted as 
correct and were not verified. Funds on deposit were reconciled with 
the records of the depository as of December 31, 1959. Stocks and bonds, 
held for safekeeping in safe deposit boxes at The Bank of Wilmington 
and The Security National Bank, Wilmington, North Carolina, were 
inspected by us on April 27, 1960 and April 21, 1960 respectively. Other 
assets are shown as reflected by the books. 

During the years 1957, 1958 and 1959 $750.00 was collected and 
set up on the books of the Treasurer as a principal fund of J. M. Spruill 
account. The examiner was informed that the collections resulted from 
the sale of property at Lake Phelps, North Carolina, which has been 
carried as part of the Rev. Edward M. Forbes Estate. The collections 
have been credited to The Rev. Edward M. Forbes Principal Account 
and the value of the real estate as carried in this account has been re- 
duced by $750.00. 

ACCOUNTANTS' STATEMENT 

Since our examination of the books was limited to the verification 
of income from the inspected stocks and bonds, and since the disburse- 
ments from the various funds were accepted as correct, we are unable 

48 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

to express an opinion as to the overall fairness of the Statement of In- 
vested Funds, as of December 31, 1959, and the related Statements of 
Income and Disbursements for the year then ended. 

Respectfully submitted,

THE BOARD OF PUBLICATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The report of the Mission Herald cannot be made adequately due 
to the loss of the Rev. Hume Cox, Editor, who has moved to the Diocese 
of Southern Virginia. Not only do we miss him but we have become 
quite impressed (1) that the Rev. Mr. Cox accomplished a tremendous 
job in seeing that our publication reached every Episcopal home each 
month and (2) with the magnificent work and the unselfish service he 
rendered in his superlative editorship. We are indeed indebted to him 
for his years of service. 

The editing of the Mission Herald since the Rev. Mr. Cox's depar- 
ture has been in the hands of the Rev. Mr. Allen and the Rev. Mr. Drake. 
They and their assistants have given unstintingly of their time and 
effort in publishing the Mission Herald. 

Even though this publication has been always the very best medium 
of promotion there has never been a definite tie between it and the De- 
partment of Promotion. 

Now Bishop Wright has requested that these two agencies of pro- 
motion be united placing the Mission Herald under the direction of the 
Department of Promotion. The result is that the Department will study 
the policy and overall general planning of the Mission Herald. 

Therefore the following motion is presented "Resolved that a new 
editor for the Mission Herald not be elected today but that the Depart- 

53 



Report— Department of Promotion 

ment of Promotion be allowed the summer of 1960 to study further the 
possibilities of The Mission Herald as an instrument of promotion and 
that our Bishop appoint an Editor at a later date after the Department 
has completed this study." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles I. Penick, Director, 
Department of Promotion. 

THE DEPARTMENT OF PROMOTION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: 

Under the able leadership of the Reverend Daniel W. Allen, the De- 
partment of Promotion in September of 1959 conducted its Annual Cleri- 
cal-Lay Representative Conference at Camp Leach in preparing for the 
Every Member Canvass. The Reverend Thomas Fraser of Winston-Salem 
was the Guest Speaker at this Conference. 

Again an emphasis was placed on the non-budget type of Canvass. 
It was noted that more and more parishes and missions in our Diocese 
are adopting this method of stewardship as being the true expression 
of spiritual giving. The old method of striving to meet a well prepared 
budget is being practiced less and less. 

The efforts of this Department following the 1959 Conference has 
been toward future planning and reorganization. This Department now 
consists of three clergymen and four laymen. At recent meetings con- 
ducted, a study has been taken giving special attention to the purpose 
of the Department of Promotion. All are in agreement that this depart- 
ment should be concerned with general yearly promotion of the church 
rather than having its major emphasis be only toward the conducting 
of the Every Member Canvass. Following the leadership of Mr. Robert 
Powell, Mr. Bill Allen, and the Reverend Daniel W. Allen who have all 
maintained this basic principle, the Department has allied itself closely 
with the Department of Evangelism and the Department of Missions, 
and from these three chairmen a series of articles have been published 
in your Mission Herald entitled "Do You Know Your Diocese." Future 
planning now is concentrated about the Area Services of Witness which 
will be conducted in our Diocese the first week in November of 1960. 
Division lines have been drawn dividing the Diocese, and central points 
have been designated for these three Services. On November 2nd, there 
will be a Service in Plymouth, on November 3rd, a Service will be con- 
ducted in Goldsboro, and on November 4th, this Service of Witness will 
be conducted in Wilmington. The Rt. Reverend John Hines, Bishop of 
Texas, will be the Guest Speaker and Bishop Wright will be present at 
all three Services. The clergy will be asked to attend in their area 
along with their Vestry representatives, choirs, acolytes, and many of 
their own parishioners. The Department will meet in the future with 
all Senior Wardens in an effort to promote these Services and to inform 
all of the details involved. Transportation arrangements are being made 
and it is hoped that these three Services in November will serve as a 
valuable medium of witness for those who attend, and it is hoped that 
a large percentage of the parishioners in our Diocese will avail them- 
selves of these three occasions. 

In preparation for the Fall Conference, Mr. Huntington Hanchett 
of the National Council has been invited to meet with six laymen during 
the month of August to train them so that they can be in charge of the 
Annual Clerical-Lay Conference which will meet approximately one month 
before the Every Member Canvass. 

Our Department is also studying the work of a full-time Diocesan 
Promotion Chairman. It is hoped at the next Convention, this can be 

54 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

more fully presented so that we can begin thinking in terms of employing 
such a man for our own Diocese. 

We look forward to the many opportunities which lie ahead that 
can be considered and put into practice by our newly organized Depart- 
ment of Promotion. 

Respectfully submitted, 
CHARLES I. PENICK, 
Chairman. 

THE DEPARTMENT OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Since our last Convention the work of the Department of Christian 
Education has taken on new life which is now being carried into all parts 
of the Diocese. 

The primary reason for this fact is that we have been most fortunate 
in securing as our Diocesan Director of Christian Education, Miss Maude 
Cutler, who took over her new duties on October 15, 1959. Miss Cutler 
is a native of Beaufort County who has excellent training (including 
a Master of Religious Education Degree from the Philadelphia Divinity 
School, and additional graduate study), and a wide, rich experience in all 
phases of Christian Education, as Director of Christian Education in Par- 
ishes in Wilson, N. C, and Charleston, S. C, in the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina and Southern Virginia and in the Province of Sewanee, Director 
of the Department of Women and teacher of Christian Education at the 
Philadelphia Divinity School, Associate Director of Windham House 
(the Eastern Center for training" women workers) and Editor of Parents' 
materials for our National Department of Christian Education. 

The Diocese of East Carolina is beginning to feel the helpful effects 
of her rich background of training and experience in our own Christian 
Education program. Miss Cutler has become a consultant and resource 
person whose help is being given to persons in many phases of our Dio- 
cesan program — to Church School teachers and officers, to Educational 
secretaries and officers of the Episcopal Church Women, to Youth Lead- 
ers, to those responsible for Camps and Conferences and to many others. 
The general response to her work has been most favorable and gratifying. 

Miss Cutler might be called the "Field Worker" for your Diocesan 
Department of Christian Education, which is composed of 14 persons 
representing all phases of Christian Education in our Diocese. She and 
members of the Department work out policies and plans together, and 
she is the key person in trying to put them into operation. In order to 
make our work most effective and helpful to the whole Diocese, the De- 
partment has divided the Diocese into 8 geographical areas. Miss Cut- 
ler moves from area to area, living in each for approximately a month 
at a time, long enough to "follow-through" on some of the work she 
does. Up to this time, she has visited the Fayetteville, Elizabeth City, 
Wilmington, and Williamston areas. Since her regular schedule cannot 
be very effective during the summer months, her time this summer will 
be given largely to Camp and Conference work, evaluating the work 
done during the past year, vacation and plans for the fall. Her itinerary 
for fall work has been tentatively set as follows: 
September — Goldsboro area 
October — Jacksonville area 
November — Greenville area 
December — Belhaven area 

The strategy in every area has been to have some member of the 
Department arrange an informal meeting of all the Clergy with Miss 

55 



Department of Youth 

Cutler for a discussion of their needs in Christian Education. Together 
they make plans for her work in the area. Due to the variety of condi- 
tions and needs. Miss Cutler's work has varied in each area. She usually 
observes a Church School in action on Sunday, talks with groups of 
teachers and individual teachers, talks with Educational Secretaries of 
the Episcopal Churchwomen, Counselors of Young Churchmen, etc. In 
one area she conducted an Institute for Teachers in the whole area, and 
met with leaders of mission churches to help with their special needs. 
The whole program is kept flexible enough for her to meet special needs 
as thy arise. 

MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVITIES OF OUR DEPARTMENT: 

1 . Had the program at a Diocesan Clergy Conference last fall, pre- 
senting Miss Cutler and trying to discover the needs of our Diocese in 
Christian Education. 

2. Conducted an Episcopal Church Institute in the Englehard area — 
involving 6 mission churches and 6 Clergymen of our Diocese and our 
Director of Christian Education. 

3. Received the gift of a slide and film strip projector from the 
Episcopal Laymen of East Carolina, and put it in use in our program. 

4. Received the Diocesan Department of Youth as an integral part 
of the Department of Christian Education. 

5. Sponsored a page in the Mission Herald edited by Miss Maude 
Cutler. 

6. Held a Parish Life Conference at Nags Head. 

SOME OF THE PLANS OF OUR DEPARTMENT FOR 
THE FUTURE ARE: 

1. To have a Leadership Conference at Camp Leach (August 26- 
29) for Clergy and key people in Christian Education in our Parishes and 
Missions. The Rev. C. William Sydnor, Jr., Rector of Christ Church, 
Alexandria, Va., is leader, assisted by Miss Maude Cutler and others. 

2. To have a Consultation Conference in the fall with National 
Church leadership to help Clergy do a better job of consultation with 
Church School teachers. 

3. To build up a VISUAL AIDS LENDING LIBRARY, (for which 
funds have been designated), under the supervision of the Rev. Jack Or- 
mond, Chairman of Audio-Visual Aids. 

4. To put more emphasis upon Adult Education, in order that our 
whole program may be strengthened. 

We have a long way to go, but we are on our way. With the in- 
spiration and help that has come to us from Miss Cutler's work among 
us, we believe that the work of God in Christian Education will move 
forward in this Diocese. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HENRY JOHNSTON, JR., 
Chairman. 

DEPARTMENT OF YOUTH 

To the Bishop and the Seventy- Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

It is a personal pleasure for me to present the report of the work 
of the Young Churchmen of the Diocese. However this report would 
be incomplete without giving the highest possible praise to the Rev. 
Charles I. Penick, rector of St. Stephen's Church, Goldsboro. He has 
served as Director of Youth in East Carolina for the past five years. 
Under his able leadership the Young Churchmen have undertaken and 

56 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

carried out the various aspects of their work. As parents and as people 
who are vitally interested in the youth of the Church we owe a deep debt 
of gratitude to the Rev. Mr. Penick for his willing service in this area. 
On the nomination and request of Bishop Wright I succeed Mr. Penick 
in Feb., 1960. 

The work of the Young Churchmen of East Carolina goes on under 
the leadership of the Youth Commission. The six members of this Com- 
mission are elected annually by the Young People as their June con- 
vention. During this year the able chairman of the Youth Commission 
has been Miss Kathie Salle, of Washington. The other commissioners 
serving have been: 

Alex Kehayes of Edenton 
Shurley Gill of Clinton 
Jack Poisson of Wilmington 
Betty Rucker Taylor of Whiteville 
Sylvia Dawson of Elizabeth City. 

These commissioners have met three times during their year of 
office. They have outlined suggested programs, acts, and goals for the 
Diocesan Young Churchmen^ around the recommendations of the National 
Division of Youth. 

The annual Mid-Winter Youth Rally was held at St. John's Church, 
Wilmington in February. We are rapidly approaching the point where 
the number of young people attending such meetings will have to be 
limited due to space difficulties in local Churches where the meetings 
are held. Plans have been completed for the Annual convention of Young 
Churchmen to be held at Camp Leach June 10-12. 

Last year the project of the young people was the financing of 
"Hattie's Hut," a new cabin at Camp Leach, named in honor of Miss 
Hattie Harney of Elizabeth City. This was in recognition of her tire- 
less efforts and interest in the youth of this Diocese. The cabin was 
completed and in use last summer. This year the young people are at- 
tempting to begin a boat fleet for use at Camp Leach. At the present 
time it seems that they will be able to purchase three boats from the 
money which they have raised. 

The Youth Commission is submitting to the Young Churchmen's 
annual Convention a proposal which would divide the work among young- 
people into three geographic areas within the Diocese and increase 
the number of Commissioners by at least twice their present number. 
It is felt that such a move might help to facilitate, broaden and deepen 
the work of the youth. 

It is the broadening and deepening aspects of the work of the Youth 
that concerns me. The task of Christian Education has been thought of 
as starting either with subject matter or with individual needs but our 
concern should be in the area of exploring problems within the exist- 
ence in which we find ourselves — to start with a satisfactory focus and 
in terms of depths attempting to discover the real issues of life and re- 
lating them to the lore of the Judo-Christian people hoping to lead to 
the discovery of the "Good News of God." It is toward this discovery 
that I intend to work. 

There are the obvious ways of helping our young people — such as 
scholarship aid for camps and conventions, and as advisors, Church 
School teachers and the like. However none of these are of any real 
significance apart from a concern which will lead us to enter into the 
issues of the lives of these young people. By this means we may be 
led, by the grace of God to make the discovery of the Good News of the 
Gospel for our own lives, and by the same token walk with them into 
the real issues of life, where they also may make this same discovery. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HEATH LIGHT, 
Director.

DEPARTMENT OF 
CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy- Seventh Annual Convention of the Diocese 
of East Carolina: — 

The concern and interests of the Department of Christian Social 
Relations cover a wide field and touch upon the work of other commit- 
tees and departments. Indeed, the fields of Christian Citizenship, World 
Relief, Ministry to the Aging, Racial and Cultural Relations and Al- 
coholism are the constant concern of our clergy and laity. 

In November of 1959 the problems of alcoholism were the subject 
of a clergy conference in Goldsboro, and it is of interest to note that 
several outstanding laymen attended this meeting and contributed sub- 
stantially to deliberations of the Conference. On March 8, 1960 your 
chairman attended a district meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous which 
was held on the campus of East Carolina College. This meeting was 
addressed by a nationally known clergyman who is, himself, an alcoholic 
and is an outstanding authority on the problem of alcoholism. It is worth 
noting here that we, as North Carolinians, may take pride in the fact 
that our state has recognized that the treatment of alcoholism is a State 
responsibility as well as that of the churches and other social organiza- 
tions. Camp Butner is a State-supported center for rehabilitation of al- 
coholics where outstanding psychiatrists and other members of the 
medical profession are working on this very serious problem. 

In at least two cities in our diocese a substantial beginning has been 
made in establishing facilities for work in mental health. Greenville 
has a well-staffed mental health clinic with a full time psychiatrist, 
a psychiatric social worker and a clinical psychologist available on a con- 
sultation basis. The facilities of this clinic are especially valuable to 
the clergy of all faiths who find it advisable to refer emotionally dis- 
turbed children, as well as adults, to the clinic. It is significant to note 
also that Greenville is the headquarters of the State Mental Health 
Association. 

A matter of general concern in Christian Social Relations is the 
matter of aid to dependent children. A particular problem in our area, 
as in others, is the high rate of illegitimate births, which in turn is 
usually closely related to juvenile delinquency. 

The field of racial relations is, of course, too complex to permit any 
extensive comments or suggestions in this report. It is obvious, how- 
ever, that the problems involved have been made more difficult by 
reason of an almost complete breakdown of the lines of communication 
between the races and it behooves all of us as Christian laymen to try 
to establish communication between men of goodwill who comprise the 
vast majority of the people of all races. 

As a specific suggestion, our church people could do much to pro- 
mote among law-enforcement and judicial officers the principle that all 
citizens are entitled to equal protection by the law. Too frequently, 
crimes which are committed by a member of a minority race against 
another person of the same race are considered to be almost a private 
matter of little concern to the courts. 

Ministry to the aging continues to be of vital concern in our diocese. 
A committee on the establishment of a home for the aged is conducting 
a continuing study of this problem but has not as yet found it feasible 
to recommend the construction and operation of such a home. The 
vastness of the problem and lack of money are substantial problems 
in this field. 

Respectfully submitted, 
F. D. DUNCAN, 
Chairman.

Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 
DEPARTMENT OF MISSIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Department of Missions and Church Extension has been com- 
posed of the following members since the meeting of the last Conven- 
tion: the Rev. Daniel W. Allen, director of the department, the Rev. 
C. Edward Sharp, chairman, Capt. Haywood Ball, the Rev. Edwin E. 
Kirton, Frank Saunders (deceased), and the Rev. Herbert C. Gravely 
who moved this year to the Diocese of South Carolina. 

Policies of the department were formulated during the past year 
after careful study at several meetings. Our Bishop and the Rev. Mr. 
Allen have given valuable assistance in shaping departmental goals and 
objectives which have enabled the Department of Missions to work more 
effectively with the mission churches of our diocese. Several fields 
of mission churches have also been visited by the chairman and other 
members of the department during the year. The Rev. Mr. Allen, di- 
rector of the department, is of course in constant contact with all mission 
churches and their clergy. 

In cooperation with the Department of Promotion, we have been 
responsible for a new series of articles in the Mission Herald promoting 
diocesan mission churches. One of the purposes of this endeavor is to 
better inform East Carolina Episcopalians of this area of the Church's 
work in the diocese through profile word pictures of mission churches, 
their people, their problems and their accomplishments. 

Finally, the Department of Missions and Church Extension is grati- 
fied and encouraged by the growing number of mission churches which 
have achieved aided-parish status and by the many others which are 
working successfully to reach that goal. 

Respectfully submitted, 
C. EDWARD SHARP, 
Chairman. 



DEPARTMENT OF EVANGELISM 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

To evangelize is to present Christ Jesus in the power of the Holy 
Spirit that men shall come to put their trust in God through Him, to 
accept Him as their Savior, and serve Him as their King in the fellow- 
ship of His Church. 

The task then of nurturing the real life of the Church given to it 
through the Holy Spirit is the work of evangelism . 

This evangelism has two sides and both are essential: The first side 
is deepening the life of the Church itself. The second side of evangelism 
is the Church's deliberate outreach to the community. 

This Department has allied itself with the Joint Commission on 
Evangelism to receive information and exchange of materials as~ the 
National Church puts into action its present theme of Evangelism. 
Within the diocese this department is supporting the plans of the De- 
partments of Promotion and Missions by sponsoring the Services of 
Witness to be held throughout the diocese in November. 

Currently enthusiastic laymen throughout the diocese are being 
named who will be the main support of this department's efforts an- 
nually. 

Keeping in mind this department's purposes to support and extend 

59 



Report— Board of Managers— Camps and Conferences 

the work of the other departments within the diocese, a fourfold plan over 
a three-year period has been developed to begin in the autumn. 

The areas within this plan include (1) the clergy (2) churchmen 
(3) churchwomen (4) teenagers. The first year will be evangelism on 
a diocesan level; the second year, evangelism on the parish level; the 
third year, evangelism on the personal level. 

Respectfully submitted, 
GEORGE B. HOLMES, 
Chairman. 

BOARD OF MANAGERS, 
CAMPS AND CONFERENCES 

To the Bishop and the Seventy- Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Diocese of East Carolina has more camps and conferences fa- 
cilities than most Southern dioceses. Camp Leach, Camp Oceanside, and 
Alice Hoffman Conference Center are located on the Pamlico, at Ocean 
City (Topsail Island) and Salter Path respectively. The attractions of 
the coastal area are being utilized for our Christian camping program. 
Too we share in the activities of the Mountain Conference Center, Kanu- 
ga near Hendersonville, which serves the southeastern area. The Camps 
and Conferences Committee of this Diocese is entrusted with the pro- 
motion, planning, and maintenance of our three facilities. 

Our Bishop has continually given constructive personal leadership 
in this important area of Christian Education. His Godly and visionary 
counsel has expressed itself tangibly with the committee in developing 
the summer operations at all three places. His keen interest and readi- 
ness to help is gratefully acknowledged. He has chosen strong clerical 
leadership for the camps. 

The Reverend Stanleigh Jenkins has been our most effective direc- 
tor of Camp Leach for six years. His apparent concern for the campers, 
very loving attention to the properties, and year round promoting of 
the Camp have made it mature into an outstanding camp. It was al- 
ready well known for its meritorious history and he has led it into new 
stature. We feel safe in saying that his name as synonymous with Camp 
Leach will long be remembered. Camp Leach is now operating on a self 
sustaining pay as you go basis. The committee feels that this accom- 
plishment is attributable to Mr. Jenkins' management and the increase 
of fees charged. Hannis Brady lives at camp year round as its custodian. 

The infancy of Camp Oceanside is rapidly developing into young 
manhood. Ocean City on Topsail is growing too and we have a splendid 
facility in the very midst of the construction. With proper and adequate 
buildings we can now offer a longer term of camping for Negro youth. 
With hearty thanks to the tireless efforts of the Reverend Edwin Kirton 
this season will see two sessions. The Rev. Mr. Kirton is well known 
for many talents, yet your Committee feels that this is a peculiarly 
significant contribution to the life and work of the Church. We commend 
him and his coworkers with the depth of gratitude for breathing vigor 
and progress into this Camp Oceanside. 

Alice Hoffman Conference Center is a handsome structure consist- 
ing of a large central building with dining and bath house facilities, 
chapel, also two four room motel units with connecting baths. The Com- 
mittee has earnestly sought for an adequate usage for these premises. 
Last season there were more vacationers using it than organized con- 
ferences. This summer we are reserving July-August use for clergy 
family vacations. The Diocese will pay for cooks to prepare food thei*e 
for the several clergy families who may attend. At other times the 

60 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

Center is open to church groups. The Reverend Lemuel Roberson had 
served at the Salter Path facility before and is directing its operations 
this year. Mr. C. R. Davant of Morehead City remains the custodian 
of the property and does yoeman service in maintaining it year round. 

Christian camping is designed to be community living in God's out 
of doors. The joy of group living in the forests, rivers, seashore of na- 
ture's beauty is the practice of camp activities. The cooperation of our 
Diocesan Coordinator of Christian Education, Miss Maude Cutler, has 
been largely instrumental in relating Christian theology of nature to the 
every day life of the campers. This gives our educational program con- 
tinuity and thrust. Also it moves us into the main stream of the evolu- 
tion of camping. We are current in this trend by stressing natural theol- 
ogy and group living in nature. God's world is the ampitheatre for living 
as His children, on the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico River. One of the 
rich by-products of this association is the confronting of young people 
with the challenge of the church for full time vocations as the church 
and for the church. Nor is there any exclusiveness. Non-Episcopalians 
are welcome. 

Respectfully submitted, 
JOHN W. DRAKE, 
Chairman.

Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

THE COMMITTEE ON 
STATUS OF PARISHES AND MISSIONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your committee met with a number of delegations from missions 
on Friday, May 6th at St. Peter's Church, Washington and desires to 
make the following recommendations: — 

(1) St. James', Belhaven, presented evidence of financial stability 
and great spiritual resources: — 

NOW, THEREFORE, 
BE IT RESOLVED: 

That St. James', Belhaven, be, and it hereby is, admitted to the Con- 
vention as a Church with aided Parish status. The resolution was adopted. 

(2) St. Andrew's, Nags Head, gave remarkable evidence of their 
financial sense of responsibility and plans for future expansion to further 
look after the area of the Outer Banks: — 

NOW, THEREFORE, 

BE IT RESOLVED: 

That St. Andrew's, Nags Head be, and it hereby is, admitted to the 
Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina as a Church with aided Parish 
status. The resolution was adopted. 

(3) Holy Innocents', Lenoir County, Kinston demonstrated their 
fine on-going spirit in the erection of a new Church and their developing 
plans for housing of their minister as well as one of the finest Sunday 
School organizations in the Diocese: — 

NOW, THEREFORE, 

BE IT RESOLVED: 

That Holy Innocents', Lenoir County, Kinston be, and it hereby is, 
admitted to the Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina as a Church 
with aided Parish status. The resolution was adopted. 

Respectfully submitted, 
STANLEY WOODLAND, 
Chairman. 

THE COMMITTEE ON CANONS 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The Committee on Canons recommends the following changes in 
Canon 8: — 

(1) Amend Canon 8, Section 1, paragraph (d) by striking out the 
words "Camp Leach" in the ninth line of the section and substitute 
therefor the words "A Department of Evangelism", then strike out the 
tenth line of the section, 

(2) Amend Canon 8, Section 2, by striking out the whole of said 
section and title thereto, 

(3) Amend Canon 8, Section 3, by striking out the words "Section 
3" being the first two words of the section and substituting therefor the 
words "Section 2". 

This is to eliminate reference to Camp Leach Committee and its 
function since the Camps and Conference Committee has superseded it. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN W. GRAHAM, Member, 
Committee on Canons.

The Church Pension Fund 

THE CHURCH PENSION FUND 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your Chairman of The Church Pension Fund Committee has re- 
ceived all information pertaining to retired clergy and survivors of clergy 
and find them properly enrolled and in order. 

The report on pension assessments for the clergy in the Diocese of 
East Carolina has been received and we find them in order and up to 
date. 

We commend the Parishes and Missions for fulfilling their obli- 
gations and hope their good work will continue. 

There are no arrears in Pension Premiums on Clergy serving in the 
Diocese as of April 1st, 1960. 

Respectfully submitted, 
FRANCIS G. JOHNSON. 

THE EPISCOPAL FOUNDATION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

On behalf of the directors I am pleased to make this — the third an- 
nual report — of our foundation. 

I pause here at the outset to record, with profound sorrow, the 
death on January 16, 1960 of our beloved fellow director, Frank H. Saun- 
ders, of Lumberton, a faithful servant of our Lord: and we are confi- 
dent he will go from strength to strength in God's life of greater 
service. 

Appropriate resolutions were adopted by our directors, and recorded 
in the minutes of the Foundation. 

In July 1959, we entered into an agency and custodian agreement 
with the Guaranty Bank and Trust Company of Greenville, and under 
this agreement, all of our cash and securities are now handled by that 
institution. 

I think this report might be called a "Progress Report", as for the 
first time, our income from investments has been sufficient to enable 
us to turn over to the Bishop a total of $3,000.00 for his use within the 
Diocese: $2,000.00 of this was from the Price-Noe fund and $1,000.00 
from our general fund. After making this transfer, we had in hand as 
of March 31, $1,333.62 from investment income, for further use by the 
Bishop, when requested by him. 

The Bishop advises us that $2,000.00 of the funds turned over to 
him, was used to assist two of our young men now in the seminary — one 
of whom is a nephew of the late Rev. and Mrs. Thomas P. Noe, who 
established the Price-Noe Memorial Fund — while the other $1,000.00 was 
used to assist in the construction of a new church building. We are very 
happy that our foundation has developed to the point where it can be 
of assistance to our Bishop in carrying on his great work. 

At a meeting of our board of directors, held this morning, a full and 
complete report of securities owned and income received, as submitted 
by Guaranty Bank and Trust Company, was presented and discussed. 
If any of you are interested in seeing a copy of this report for the period 
ending March 31, 1960, I shall be glad to make it available to you. 

I shall be as brief as possible with my report here, but I do want 
to point out to you that we now have invested funds amounting to 
$113,335.00 and that the income from these securities to March 31 
amounted to $4,772.23. The only operating expense amounts to $238.61, 
representing the fee charged by our custodian bank, figured on a per- 

64 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

centage of income to the end of the March 31 period. During the 
period under review, we received 17 individual donations consisting of 
$915.00 in cash and $1,145.00 in securities. 

In his splendid address this morning, Bishop Wright told you of the 
magnificent gift to our Diocese, under the will of the late Dr. Louis W. 
Alston, whose death occurred in January 1960. Dr. Alston's estate is 
now in process of settlement and we are advised by his executor that we 
should receive cash and securities amounting to $800,000.00, at an early 
date. This fund is to be administered by our Foundation and as pro- 
vided in Dr. Alston's will, the income only is to be used for the purposes 
mentioned by the Bishop. Income from this fund, like that from all 
other funds now held by the Foundation, is to be used exclusively for 
building up, strengthening and carrying on the work of the Episcopal 
Church in the Diocese and should be of great assistance to our Bishop 
in his untiring efforts to care for the spiritual needs of all of our people, 
in his widely scattered field. This enlarged fund presents a challenge, 
as well as a great opportunity, to each and every one of you, as well 
as to those of us who have the responsibility of directing the affairs 
of this, your Foundation. Speaking for the officers and directors of the 
Foundation, we gladly accept the challenge and pledge our best efforts 
to the end that, over the years ahead, our Bishop might realize some 
of his dreams and hopes for our church in the Diocese of East Carolina. 

In closing, may I repeat a request which I have made before, that 
each of you keep the Bishop's heavy work and great responsibilities 
ever in mind and make a contribution in cash or securities to the Foun- 
dation, as you might find it convenient from time to time: or that you 
make provision in your will in such amount as you think proper, to help 
build up the capital funds of our Foundation to the point where its in- 
come will adequately provide for his work now and in the years to 
come. Certainly, we can do not less than follow the splendid example 
of Mrs. James G. Staton, the Rev. and Mrs. Thomas P. Noe, Miss Lula 
Love and Dr. Alston, as well as about 20 individuals, some of whom are 
present here today and who will have the satisfaction, while yet alive, 
of seeing the good work carried on. We invite your suggestions and 
your prayers for the success of this undertaking. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. G. GAITHER, 
President. 

COLLEGE WORK COMMISSION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

The College Work Commission is appointed by the Bishop to serve 
as a body of advice for this important mission field within the Diocese. 
Our task roughly compares with that of the Department of College Work 
within the Home Department of the National Council. Within the Dio- 
cese there are six college facilities; Elizabeth City Teachers, Fayette- 
ville Teachers, Flora Macdonald at Red Springs, East Carolina College 
at Greenville, Wilmington College, Chowan College, Murfreesboro. 

College work seeks to bring the church and its ministry to the uni- 
versity community. This includes the administration, faculty, and stu- 
dent body. The importance of the Christian mission is to make the Gos- 
pel relevant to these persons where they are. Our Episcopal Church has 
a full and rich heritage for this mission. Our trained clergy's general 
intellectual level, and social maturity give us adequate resources for 
doing the job. Our Church can and does speak to the university. 

The Reverend Robert Snell serves Flora Macdonald part time; the 
Reverend Francis Johnson now is serving Fayetteville, the Reverend 
Clyde Beatty ministers at Elizabeth City.

Armed Forces Commission 

It has been a long standing desire of the College Work Commission 
to have a priest as college chaplain at East Carolina College. This 
desire was realized when the Reverend Richard N. Ottaway accepted the 
call to this missionary area last November, becoming the Curate of St. 
Paul's Church and Episcopal College Chaplain in Greenville. 

The Bishop, Executive Council, National Council, and our College 
Work Commission joined hands with the Vestry of St. Paul's in making 
Mr. Ottaway's chaplaincy possible. The financial structure available": 
The National Council allocated $900 and pension premium; the Diocese 
allocated $900 plus pension premium and the Parish added the remaining 
amount to present an attractive salary for Mr. Ottaway. In a very defi- 
nite way he is a missionary priest. His ministry requires calling in the 
college infirmary, writing for school publications, counselling students, 
entertaining, speaking to college groups. The campus is his parish and 
he meets all persons connected with the university community. 

Since beginning his work at East Carolina the Reverend Mr. Otta- 
way has worked closely with the College Work Chairman in planning his 
time spent in the work. He has taken male students to seminary con- 
ference on the ministry; he has taken students to Provincial conferences; 
he has attended professional conferences at Black Mountain and Nash- 
ville, Tennessee; this summer he will be working closely with the Na- 
tional Council in setting up service projects for students. Our Commis- 
sion feels that this young priest's personal and professional qualifications 
for college work have already attracted national attention. Such is the 
far flung enterprise of college work and we in East Carolina feel that 
we are very much a part of a bigger mission. We are "about our Father's 
business" in the university. 

Our Commission decides on policy, seeks to maintain our physical 
properties at East Carolina College, assists and encourages college work- 
ers in the field, knowing that our Bishop is very deeply concerned about 
college work. Our National Mission to College work has been greatly 
stimulated by the 1960 Missionary Offering (Mite boxes in Lent). These 
funds will be used for construction of college work facilities around the 
country. 

Respectfully submitted, 
JOHN W. DRAKE, JR., 
Chairman. 

ARMED FORCES COMMISSION 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

It is a great privilege to report to this Convention for the Armed 
Forces Commission of the Diocese of East Carolina. I may take ad- 
vantage of the opportunity because this particular area of emphasis 
is of extreme importance to me. 

Let me go back to a time nearly two years ago. On July 16, 1958, 
at St. Anne's Church in Jacksonville, a small group met to organize 
(if it seemed feasible) an Armed Forces Commission. The Rev. Heath 
Light, the Rev. Raby Edwards, the Rev. Dan Allen and I were the 
clergy present at the first meeting. Mr. Wesley Conkling of Jackson- 
ville, Mr. Larry Hodgson and Mr. Gus Dannehl of Havelock were the 
laity present. 

Admittedly we were somewhat ignorant of just how we should 
go about a work such as we were beginning. I believe that each of us 
was aware of the need for stressing this particular area of emphasis. 
In the course of our conversation that day, as we thought about the 
military in our diocese, we came to the astounding conclusion that there 
is present in this diocese nearly 500,000 persons who are in some way 
directly connected with the military endeavor of our country. These 

66 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

persons are active duty military personnel and their dependents, civilian 
technicians and their dependents, civilian employees and their depen- 
dents. Also, we became aware that the presence of these persons has 
a tremendous positive effect upon the economy of our diocese. 

Our thoughts were not solely about numbers and the economical 
factor, but more important and uppermost in our minds was the ques- 
tion: "What is the Church in the diocese doing to meet the religious 
needs of these nomadic peoples whose livelihood is obtained through 
serving for our safety?" We believe that our diocese can still quite 
frankly ask itself that question. What are we doing to meet these 
needs? We should also question our reception of militarily-connected 
people into the active life of our congregations. One of the clergy mem- 
bers of our Commission has said that in some churches the military peo- 
ple are not snubbed — they are ignored. 

Since our first meeting, the Commission has held four other meet- 
ings and we shall meet for the first 1960 meeting next Tuesday, May 
17th. We now have clergy and lay members of the Commission from 
Fayetteville, Elizabeth City, Goldsboro, Havelock, and Jacksonville. 
We will add representation from Hertford if that military facility there 
is activated. We are aware too of the presence along our coast of many 
other minor installations. We seek to bring such an awareness to our 
people also. 

During our meetings subsequent to the initial meeting and since 
the addition of Commission members, we have been able to formulate 
more concrete purposes. Now the commission believes that its area of 
concern should be not only the military connected people in our diocese 
but also those persons who go out of our diocese to serve in the military 
forces of our country. 

This is because, we are told that some of our men and women serv- 
ing actively in the Armed Forces never hear from their home parishes. 
The Commission is now seeking to remind the parishes twice yearly to 
remember these men and women. 

Discussions in our meetings has been around the practical aspects 
of incorporating the Armed Force men and women into a full parish 
experience. Together we realize that we may do wonders by being 
God's people in areas where life is lived in a dramatic dimension. There 
is a sense of urgency at our meetings which spells itself out in three 
letters W-A-R. Wars and threats of wars exist and the ever present 
opportunity to exterminate man. 

This Commission believes that in the parishes in military areas 
may begin attitudes and beliefs that could change the world. We think 
at depth of hearts given to Jesus Christ in allegiance and of hearts re- 
turned to the giver purified, strengthened, and enriched. 

Our desire is to think of people not in terms of military or civilian 
but as Churchmen all — serving a God of peace. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. E. LIVESAY, 
Chairman. 

THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Today, I shall present to you the highlights of the Annual Report 
I made to the Board of Directors of Good Shepherd Hospital, in January. 

I presert my 14th Annual Report, on the hospital's 22nd year of 
service. 

Our big projects for 1959 were as follows: 

67 



The Laymen of The Diocese of East Carolina 

1. We converted a storage room into a Recovery Room. This project 
is modern in every respect. It cost the hospital approximately $2,500.00 
to complete this project. 

2. A Labor Room was added to the Obstetrical department. This 
four-bedded labor room is equipped with the most modern equipment. 
This project cost $2,000.00. 

3. A new hot water heating system was installed in the hospital. 
Here before, there were certain places in the hospital we were unable to 
get hot water. This now has been eliminated. This project cost $2,000.00. 

4. A Chapel was completed in the hospital during 1959. This Chapel 
was completed by friends of the hospital in New Bern. 

With the ending of our fiscal year, December 31, 1959, we had 40 
employees on our payroll. During 1959, we took in receipts from all 
sources, in the amount of $163,594.55 and, disbursed in the amount of 
$160,842.83. This year I can again inform you that we ended the year 
in the black. As of December 31, 1959, we had a balance of $3,432.54 
in the bank, with no outstanding account payable. Yes, 1959 was in- 
deed a banner year for us financially. 

During the year of 1959, we received from the welfare departments 
$25,699.04. This money represented cases treated from Craven, Jones 
and Pamlico Counties. From the N. C. Blind Commission, N. C. Medical 
Care and Vocational Rehabilitation Commission, we received $3,610.00. 
This money represented services rendered to indigent patients sponsored 
by the State of North Carolina. From the Kate B. Reynolds Trust Fund, 
we received $1,697.62. And, from the Duke Endowment we received 
$2,989.00 for free days and $2,000.00 for Capital purposes. This year, 
we expect to receive $3,642.00 for free days of care rendered during 
1959. 

The Episcopal Church Women of East Carolina continued to support 
the Good Shepherd Hospital during the year, both financially and with 
supplies. The U.T.O. of the National Council gave us $5,500.00 to help 
us with our major capital items already mentioned, during the year. 

A student from Oriental, N. C. entered Community Hospital, Wil- 
mington, N. C. to pursue a 3 year nursing course — with Good Shepherd 
Hospital being the sponsor — through the courtesy of Bishop Wright and 
friends of the church. 

During 1959, we treated a total of 2,028 patients — with an average 
of 31 patients per day. 525 operations were performed. A total of 377 
babies were born. There were 56 hospital deaths. 

In conclusion, may I say, the over-all condition of the hospital is in 
good shape. However, with the cost of hospitalization continuing to in- 
crease from day to day, one can not anticipate the future. Last year 
our per diem cost for each patient was $14.01. This year our per diem 
cost increased to $14.71 per day. 

A hospital may be a distinguished institution, no matter what its 
size. If it is great in spirit, original in its outlook, creative in its serv- 
ices, and inspiring in its community relationships, it will assume a defi- 
nite personality. 

Respectfully submitted, 
O. T. FAISON, 

Secretary-Treasurer. 

THE LAYMEN OF 
THE DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

In May of last year, Mr. Robert J. Powell, Jr. and I represented the 
laymen of our diocese at the Annual Laymen's Training Course for the 

68 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

Fourth Province at Clemson, S. C. The subject of the course dealt with 
Christian Family Life, presenting some vital new insights about our min- 
istry to our own families, and was a follow up of a study made by the 
Bishops at the most recent Lambeth Conference. For the first time 
in the history of the Laymen's Training Courses the material was pre- 
sented to the clergy. The Rev. Raby Edwards and the Rev. Herbert 
Gravely were appointed to attend for our diocese. 

In July, 1959 the representatives to this conference, both clergy and 
laity, reproduced the course for a group of laymen from the parishes 
of Beaufort, Grifton, Havelock and Morehead. St. Christopher's, Have- 
lock, was the host parish for this one day meeting which we felt was 
well received. The course of Christian Family Life was made available 
through publicity to any interested group within our diocese but was 
met with no response outside the Havelock area. 

There were two District Laymen's Meetings held in the fall of 1959 
under the leadership and direction of Mr. Robert J. Powell, Jr., past 
Chairman of the Laymen of the Diocese of East Carolina. One meeting 
was held in Elizabeth City and the other in Williamston. There was also 
a meeting of the Keymen in the Wilmington area. The meetings were 
well attended and almost every parish and mission in these respective 
areas were represented. Our program for this fall includes an enlarge- 
ment of these area meetings so as to include each parish and mission 
without our diocese. 

Twice a year the Laymen of East Carolina come together as a cor- 
porate body in their individual parishes and share in the Sacrament of 
Holy Communion. The appointed dates for our corporate communions 
are Whitsunday, and the first Sunday in Advent at which time we 
present our Laymen's Thank Offering which this year totaled $1,872.68. 
Although this amount is important in furthering the work of the lay- 
men, our emphasis has been on larger participation by our men and 
boys in the two corporate communions. 

The Annual Laymen's Convention was held on January 24, 1960 at 
St. Mary's, Kinston. Our speaker for this meeting was the Rt. Rev. 
John B. Bentley, Director of the Overseas Department of the National 
Council. The new officers of the Division of Laymen's Work in the 
Diocese of East Carolina were elected at this convention and are as fol- 
lows: Chairman, Dr. L. Sidney Christian, Williamston; Vice-Chairman, 
Mr. Allen Strange, Wilmington; and Secretary-Treasurer, Mr. A. H. 
Jeffress, Kinston. 

The body of the convention voted to give a memorial in honor of 
Mr. Frank Saunders, a past chairman of our Laymen's Association and 
one who had given so much of himself and his talents in fulfilling his 
ministry to the Laymen of East Carolina. The appointed committee 
for this memorial selected the pulpit for the new church building of Trini- 
ty, Lumberton which was the home parish of Mr. Saunders. Each year 
the Bishop's Trophy is presented to the parish whose laymen have par- 
ticipated most actively in lay activities including attendance at the 
Annual Laymen's Convention and the Laymen's Corporate Communions. 
This year the Trophy was awarded to Trinity, Lumberton. The Conven- 
tion was closed with an Induction Service for the new officers conducted 
by Bishop Wright. 

This past March I had a conference with Bishop Wright in regard 
to the laymen's work of the diocese for the coming year. As a result 
of this meeting plans were made to hold three dinner meetings in the 
fall for the laymen. One to be held in the northern, one in the middle 
and one in the southern part of our diocese. We anticipate these meet- 
ings being most welcome by our laymen and a means by which we may 
all become more powerful witnesses for God. 

On January 8, 1961 the Annual Convention will be held and should 
prove to be the most outstanding convention ever held by the Laymen 
of East Carolina. 

69 



The Episcopal Churchwomen 

I was recently privileged to be appointed by Bishop Wright to rep- 
resent the laymen of our diocese at the 1960 Annual Training Course 
for the Laity held this year at Jekyll Island, Georgia. The subject for 
the three day course dealt with our responsibility as laymen for the 
recruitment of the ministry. It is difficult to express the wonderful 
spiritual experiences that one receives from attending these and similar 
meetings which are so often made available to the laity. 

In closing my report I would like to review with you the purpose 
of the laymen's work and this I can best do by quoting from Bishop 
Wright's Address at our Convention last year. "The work of the Laymen 
is not the work of a club (such as a Civic Club with its own particular 
objective and interests). The work of the Laymen of the Church is too 
large, encompassing and important for that period. Their work is the work 
of the entire Church, Parish, and Diocese and should be considered 
in this setting. The work of the Laymen, as a group, should be to fur- 
ther the whole program of the Parish or Diocese and the total mission 
of the Church." 

Respectfully submitted, 
L. SIDNEY CHRISTIAN, 
Chairman. 

THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

From the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese I bring you greet- 
ings and the hope that all you do in this your 77th Annual meeting may 
further God's plan as witnessed by our laymen and laywomen in East 
Carolina. 

Last week we held our 72nd Annual meeting in beautiful old Eden- 
ton. We met with a triangular purpose. First, to worship together, sec- 
ond to hear and to evaluate that which we have accomplished, and third, 
to think upon and to carry home with us ways in which we as individuals 
and as Episcopal Churchwomen could bring about a closer relationship 
with God in our daily living. 

Our meeting was saddened by the loss of Mrs. Walker Taylor, our 
former Diocesan president, and a beloved friend to all Episcopal Church- 
women. She was a gentle, loving leader. To her the church came first 
in her life. As long as there are Episcopal Churchwomen they will con- 
tinue to live more closely to God because of her love and leadership. 

In that which we had accomplished we gave good report. To further 
the work within our parishes we gave $32,641.58. And for the Lord's 
work beyond the parishes we gave a total gift of $21,481.57. 

Its hard to evaluate the United Thank Offering gift from Episcopal 
Churchwomen in dollars for it represents gratitude from grateful hearts 
for blessings big and small, in our day by day living. The gift of over 
three million dollars given in Miami Beach at the last Triennial as the 
Thank Offering gift of love, paid missionaries, built hospitals, and 
churches and showed the heart of Episcopal Churchwomen to thousands 
of people who desperately needed our love and our help. This year our 
Thank Offering in East Carolina will add $12,801.09 to the glorious 
offering to be made at the next Triennial. 

And so the total sum of all our giving for this- past year represent- 
ed a very substantial increase and is cause for thankfulness to God for 
His goodness to us. For the total sum of all our gifts was $69,942.52. 

Last summer the Episcopal Churchwomen held the largest summer 
conference they have ever had. And under the wonderful leadership 
of Miss Estelle Carver and Mrs. William Gordon with the Rev. Raby 
Edwards as Chaplain, and the Rev. Stanley Jenkins as a program leader 

70 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

as well as camp planner, we had three exciting days at Camp Leach 
together. 

In the fall Episcopal Churchwomen held two inspiring Convocational 
meetings with Bishop Saucedo of Mexico as the guest speaker. 

In spite of all the ice and snow could do to prevent us in March 
the Churchwomen held two fine quiet days under the able leadership 
of the Rev. Manney C. Reid. 

And during the year the Ecumenical and Social Relations activities 
have engulfed about all the worthwhile undertakings of the communities. 

All these things we've done besides our regular parish meetings and 
projects and so we have been busy women indeed. 

But while our giving and our good works have multiplied this year 
our gain in new members won for Christ has not increased by the same 
measure. This concerns us greatly, for our gifts wonderful as they are, 
are not enough. We are called to serve by personal evangelism and 
example and so as our third dimension of our meeting last week we 
left with the desire to live with and pray with the need within us to find 
a closer relationship with God that in so doing we will find ways to 
bring others to Him. 

In the year ahead may we as laymembers of this our beloved Diocese 
seek and find new ways to serve God not with luke warm lip service 
but with hearts afire with the joy of the knowledge that Christ is the 
answer and our lives are dedicated to Him. 

Respectfully submitted, 
MRS. HEMAN CLARK, 
President. 

BOARD OF MANAGERS OF 
THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

I would like to start my report by stating that the Charlottetown 
Mall is now in operation and from all reports is a healthy operation and 
business is far better than the lessors had estimated. It will be necessary 
for us to keep publicizing the fact that the money from the lease is held 
in a Building Fund to be used to build new buildings on a new site if and 
when we are ready to move from this location. It is necessary that our 
contributors know that our need for current expenses is greater than ever. 

Applications for admissions have increased during the past year 
and we are now operating right at capacity. During 1959 we cared for 
the following: Diocese of North Carolina 52, East Carolina 17, Western 
Carolina 10, total 79. 10 full orphans; 27 mother dead, 29 father dead, 
13 both parents living — 43 boys and 36 girls. After we receive an ap- 
plication Mrs. Whisnant or some representative from the Orphanage 
makes a home visit to meet the applicant and family. This home visit 
helps to establish whether a real need that we can help with exists. If it 
is determined that our help is needed the application is continued and 
our help is given. We have many calls for help with mentally retarded 
children. We are not staffed or equipped to help them. 

Our boys and girls are like other boys and girls — some do real well, 
some not so good. Our aim is to equip every boy and girl so that he 
can earn a good living and to become a useful member of society. I am 
happy to say most of them succeed. They do well in public school and 
participate in school activities. They also do well with their 4-H Club 
work. Clifton Cook is quite outstanding. He was a member of the 
North Carolina 4-H Livestock Judging Team. His team represented 
North Carolina at the National Livestock Congress held each year in 

71 



St. Mary's College 

Waterloo, Iowa. On points he ranked third in the nation. Clifton is our 
second high ranking winner Mary Frobe being our first (1955). 

Our farm ranks next to our church and school work. Although 
1959 will go down in the record book as too wet for row crop farming, 
it has been a good year for small grain, hay and pasture. Although our 
farm is eight miles away we managed to get there almost every day. 
Our farm record shows that we produced 179,498 lbs. of milk valued 
at $13,462.35; 307 cases and 2 doz. eggs valued at $4,606.00; meat, hay, 
grain and vegetables valued at $16,356.35, total value $34,424.70. Total 
expenses $24,067.82; Gain $10,356.88. Cash sales $15,263.85. We receive 
lots of fun and recreation on our farm. We all enjoy going to the farm. 
Many of our consultants for child caring institutions condemn the farm 
as a part of a child caring program. Recently two consultants have 
made a study of our Institution and both have praised our program and 
think it helps our children in their development. 

Today we hear much about juvenile crime. Only 5% of the youth 
in our nation are delinquent. This 5 f /r gives a "black-eye" to the other 
95%. The thing that is alarming is this statement from J. Edgar 
Hoover. 1,000,000 of our youth are arrested each year. The increase is 
eight times greater than adult crime; 20% of the boys between 10 and 
17 have police records. Illegitimacy continues to increase. It is very 
rare that an active church-going youth falls into this delinquent group. 
1 wonder if the people responsible for the Report of the State of Our 
Church given at the Diocese of North Carolina Convention gave any 
thought to this problem. It seems to me that as long as we have delin- 
quent youth our Church Institution will have a place in our society. 

The results of our 1959 Thanksgiving Offering to date Jan. 26, 1960 
is as follows: Diocese of East Carolina, $5,549.84, Diocese of North Caro- 
lina $22,125.80, Western N. C. $3,129.29, Special Thanksgiving Offering 
$36.26; Total $30,831.19. All of you remember this is our chief means 
of support. Our budget for 1960 is $110,888.50. 

Thompson Orphanage ranks high among the child caring institutions 
of our nation. Its success is due to the men and women of our church 
who give so freely of their time and money for its support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

M. D. WHISNANT, 

Superintendent. 

ST. MARY'S JUNIOR COLLEGE 

To the Bishop and the Seventy-Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

It is with pleasure that I present to you a report of the activities 
taking place at St. Mary's since the last convention. The 118th session 
began in September and will be concluded on May 30, 1960. In many 
respects this has been a good year and substantial progress has been 
made toward further improvement and strengthening of the academic 
program. 

In the last report it was indicated that under the plan set up by 
the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools each mem- 
ber institution would in the next few years begin a self -evaluation study 
to be followed, upon its completion, by a visit from a committee of the 
Association. St. Mary's volunteered to begin the study immediately 
and work was started in February, 1959. This program involved every 
member of the faculty and a number of staff members. The study was 
completed and reports were made in the early fall. During October the 
visiting committee, appointed by the Association, reviewed all of the 
program and interviewed a large number of people on the campus. At 
the conclusion of the visit a report was made to the Association and to 

72 



Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

St. Mary's. I am happy to state that the report was a most favorable 
one. 

The Recommendations of the committee were presented to the Execu- 
tive Committee of the Board of Trustees at its next meeting. Since that 
date a presentation was made to the faculty and the Alumnae Council. 
To implement the proposals of the self-study report the chairman of the 
Board of Trustees appointed a Planning Committee to review the needs 
of the college and to project its future. This committee will make its 
report to the next meeting of the Executive Committee. 

The most pressing need from the standpoint of the physical plant 
is more space for the library. After careful study the Planning Com- 
mittee and other groups concerned with this problem feel that a new 
library building must be constructed. A special committee of the Board 
of Trustees is seeking ways and means to accomplish the desired goal. 
They will report to the next meeting of the Board. 

By vote of the faculty a new admissions policy was adopted for the 
session beginning in September, 1960. Each student will be required 
to take entrance tests prior to acceptance. This practice is almost uni- 
versal today and in previous years many students have done this on a 
voluntary basis. The additional information will make possible the 
selection of a better prepared student body. 

During the past summer many projects were completed for im- 
provement of the physical plant. Two new and completely up-to-date 
bathrooms were finished on the first floors of the Wings. The road 
on the back campus was resurfaced, a stone wall was constructed on 
the St. Mary's Street side of the campus to stop serious erosion in that 
area, portions of two buildings were water-proofed, and new draperies 
were secured for the large parlor and the dining room. 

During the summer of 1960 further renovation will take place. We 
hope to continue the bathroom renovation program and to install a new 
lighting system in the auditorium. The latter project will include up-to- 
date facilities for presenting plays. One of the most pressing repair 
items will be the replacement of the roof on the dining room building. 
Efforts to repair this roof over a period of several years have not been 
successful. 

It is with regret that I report to you that Mrs. William C. Guess, 
a member of the faculty since 1938, died last summer. Mrs. Guess 
headed the physical education department for a number of years but 
recently taught sociology after special graduate work was done in this 
field. 

The financial picture is as difficult as ever. There are many needs 
that cannot be met for lack of adequate income. Costs of operation 
continue to rise and only a token of the total operating budget comes 
Ifrom sources other than student fees. The Diocese should study its re- 
sponsibility to its institution and make plans to place a more realistic 
sum in its budget for St. Mary's. The chairman of the Board has written 
to the Bishop asking for permission to approach all parishes in each 
owning diocese for parochial support. We look forward to receipt of 
favorable replies to this request. 

Respectfully submitted, 
RICHARD G. STONE, 
President, 

THE UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH 

To the Bishop and the Seventy- Seventh Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina: — 

Your Trustees report the attendance of Mr. Donald Clement of New 
Bern and the Rev. Hunley Elebash of Wilmington at the annual meeting 

73 



The University of the South 

of the Trustees in Sewanee in June 1959. In addition the Rev. Mortimer 
Glover of Wilmington has served as Regent of the University and has 
attended those meetings in Sewanee during the year. All of us are 
happy to serve in this manner. And we convey to you our sincere 
opinion that our University is excellent in every way and we commend 
it to you for your continuing interest, service, and help. 

The value of the University of the South to its owning dioceses was 
clearly demonstrated in a study made last fall showing the parishes and 
missions which had been served by one or more clergymen trained 
at Sewanee. Three-fourths of the churches in the owning dioceses have 
had at some time a priest who attended the University, and these churches 
are located in almost 90% of the communities in which the Episcopal 
Church was at work in the South at the beginning of 1959. 

GENERAL NEWS 

News from the Mountain continues to be good. The School of 
Theology recently received the largest bequest ever to come to Sewanee 
— $800,000 from the late Dr. and Mrs. Louis W. Alston of Morganton, 
N. C, and Baltimore, Md. Before his death in January 1960, Dr. Alston 
for some years had been contributing to the Dean's Discretionary Fund, 
but no one at Sewanee was aware such a major benefaction was being 
planned. 

Ground was broken in March for the Guerry Memorial Building, 
which will provide classroom, office, auditorium and art gallery facili- 
ties, and which will honor Sewanee's late Vice-Chancellor Alexander 
Guerry. The building is scheduled for completion in a little over a year 
and will enable the University to get rid of all substandard classrooms 
and faculty offices still in use in frame buildings, and of the temporary 
auditorium erected several years ago. 

CHAPEL COMPLETION 

Last June 7 All Saints' Chapel was put into use after more than 
a year of construction. Work continues on the building, putting in the 
finishing touches and with stained glass windows on order from the 
English firm manufacturing them still to be installed, but services have 
been held without interruption since last summer, and the chapel has 
been filled to overflowing on several occasions. There are over 3,000 
attendances each week. Some stained glass windows need yet to be 
given. Concerning payment for the chapel itself, Bishop Frank A. Juhan, 
Sewanee's director of development, reports some $500,000 is needed to 
pay for work already done or that is immediately needed. 

As of March 31, 1960, the Diocese of East Carolina has given $12,- 
083.43 toward its chapel completion objective of $22,950.00 and an addi- 
tional $175.00 in memorials. 

ENROLLMENT 

Sewanee's total enrollment for 1959-60 is the highest ever — 285 
cadets at Sewanee Military Academy representing 26 states and four 
foreign countries; 602 young men in the College of Arts and Sciences 
representing 36 states, the District of Columbia, and six foreign coun- 
tries; and 80 men in the School of Theology representing 25 dioceses in 
18 states, eight of them outside of Sewanee's owning group of 21. 

From the Diocese of East Carolina there are five young men in the 
College of Arts and Sciences, one cadet at Sewanee Military Academy, 
and one student in the School of Theology. 

The Centennial Report of the Registrar published last fall re- 
vealed that the University in its first 100 years awarded 3,318 earned 
degrees and matriculated 9,199 students. Sewanee celebrated its cen- 
tennial during the 1957-58 academic year. 

Graduate scholarship awards are already beginning to pile up this

Seventy-Seventh Annual Convention 

spring. Five seniors who will graduate in June and two young alumni 
have received Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation awards 
for a year's graduate study at the American university of their choice 
in 1960-61. 

GIFT INCOME AND CHURCH SUPPORT 

For the fifth successive year the total gift income of the University 
exceeded one million dollars. The total for 1959 came to $1,010,834. 
Bishop Juhan, director of development, reported this as somewhat below 
the five-year average of approximately $1,350,000, adding' that in 1957, 
a year which included a Ford Foundation grant and a major bequest, 
"Sewanee with $1,740,299 was first in the nation in a total gift among 
small men's colleges." The 1959 gift total was notable in that no major 
bequest was included, although the total number of bequests was high, 
and the year followed the completion of Sewanee's Centennial Fund 
and some decline was anticipated. 

Sewanee's Church Support program continues to move toward the 
goal of one-dollar-per-communicant-per-year from the 21 owning dio- 
ceses. For the year 1959 the total was $185,045.58. Nearly $145,000 was 
for Sewanee-in-the-Budget and over $40,000 was from Theological Edu- 
cation offerings. 

The Diocese of East Carolina in 1959 gave $1,463.38 toward Se- 
wanee-in-the-Budget and $1,321.01 to Sewanee in Theological Educa- 
tion Sunday offerings. 

We commend to this Convention the proposed 1961 Budget of our 
Diocese, which includes $2,000.00 for the operating budget of Sewanee 
and $500.00 to the Sewanee Chapel Fund. These amounts are to be 
given quite apart and distinct from other gifts of Parishes and indi- 
viduals. 

As we return to our home parishes let us remember the grateful- 
ness and pride we can justly feel in our University of the South and let 
us remember too Sewanee's need for us. Your trustees urge you to do 
all you can to keep and increase Sewanee-in-the-Budget. Sewanee IS 
important to every Episcopalian. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HUNLEY ELEBASH, 
for the Trustees from 
East Carolina.
